Justice and Difference


Traditionally justice and impartiality are thought to be inseparable. In a pluralistic context there is a demand for making justice difference-sensitive. This may appear an attempt at squaring the circle. Many feminists think difference can be accommodated without compromising justice. The speaker will critically examine this thesis.
