What is justice?

The view from the East
The view from the East

A new book is out by Amartya Sen.  In a review, Carlin Romano gives historical context to the justice debate.

In the end, Sen’s idea of justice seems common sense, if not childlike.  It is that which children (presumably still innocent of wily politics) think it is.

I suspect the book is not worth the trees, as Sen seems to be trying to ride on his Nobel in economics.  Romano’s review helps to understand the history of the debate.
