Synopsis: Since classical Greece the term «justice» has been used to denote those characteristics of institutions that warrant the loyalty and support of peoples affected by them. Thus, if a government is found to be just, its citizens are said to be under obligation to obey its lawful commands. That traditional usage is viable only for homogeneous cultures that support a univocal notion of justice. Where that condition fails, as it does in the diversity which typifies most democracies at the end of the third millennium of the common era, the roles of justice become problematic. The essays in this volume explore many of the different aspects of the changing role of «justice» in today's multicultural context.

About the Author: The Editor: J. Ralph Lindgren is the Clara H. Stewartson Professor of Philosophy at Lehigh University. In addition to numerous articles and essays in the fields of semiotics, philosophy, law and economics, he has authored The Social Philosophy of Adam Smith and The Law of Sex Discrimination.
The Contributors: John Brigham, William C. Charron, Robert Ginsberg, Edward Keynes, Jay Knaack, J. Ralph Lindgren, Joseph Margolis, William E. Murnion, Michel Rosenfeld, George Teschner.
