Kant"s theory of justice by Allen D. Rosen Download PDF EPUB FB2

Kant identified three corollaries of his theory of justice that deserve brief mention. First, justice is concerned only with external actions by which one person can influence other people, whether directly or indirectly.

Second, justice is not concerned with the desires, wishes, or needs of other people. Kant divides moral philosophy into two parts: ethics and the theory of justice. 1 Each is composed of different sets of rights, duties, and laws. The theory of (strict) justice contains “external,” “enforceable,” “coercive,” “narrow,” and “perfect” rights and duties.

The philosopher Immanuel Kant believed that his retributive theories of justice were based in logic and reason. The retributive stance on punishment states that punishment is necessary, and indeed, justified, on the basis that the act of committing crime deserves punishment.
