Strategic Justice

Convention and Problems of Balancing Divergent Interests

Peter Vanderschraaf

Oxford Moral Theory

  • Presents a new defense of justice as convention by integrating elements of game theory, as well as insights of past philosophical accounts of convention
  • Addresses the perennial questions 'What precisely is justice?' and 'Why should we do what justice requires?'
  • Presents conventionalist responses that have distinct advantages over the answers of more widely accepted theories of justice
