Summary "In Concepts of Justice David Raphael gives a philosophical survey of the development of the idea of justice. While the framework is historical, the aim is philosophical analysis and criticism, rather than the discovery of fresh historical facts." "Raphael does not assume that the theories of philosophers must reflect the thought and usage of people generally: some do while others are idiosyncratic, and a number of philosophers neglect the usage of the concept in the context of law. While this book is definitely not a comprehensive history, it is comprehensive in its scope."--Jacket
