Sinopse

This book consists of two parts - the essay 'The Idea of Public Reason Revisited,' first published in 1997, and 'The Law of Peoples,' a major reworking of a much shorter article by the same name published in 1993. The first essay explains why the constraints of public reason, a concept first discussed in Political Liberalism (1993), are ones that holders of both religious and non-religious comprehensive views can reasonably endorse. The second essay extends the idea of a social contract to the Society of Peoples and lays out the general principles that can and should be accepted by both liberal and non-liberal societies as the standard for regulating their behavior toward one another. In particular, it draws a crucial distinction between basic human rights and the rights of each citizen of a liberal constitutional democracy. It explores the terms under which such a society may appropriately wage war against an 'outlaw society,' and discusses the moral grounds for rendering assistance to non-liberal societies burdened by unfavorable political and economic conditions.
