|Title:||Neo-Aristotelian Social Justice: An Unanswered Question|
|Citation:||Hope S (2013) Neo-Aristotelian Social Justice: An Unanswered Question, Res Publica, 19 (2), pp. 157-172.|
|Abstract:||In this paper I assess the possibility of advancing a modern conception of social justice under neo-Aristotelian lights, focussing primarily on conceptions that assert a fundamental connection between social justice and eudaimonia. After some preliminary remarks on the extent to which a neo-Aristotelian account must stay close to Aristotle's own, I focus on Martha Nussbaum's sophisticated neo-Aristotelian approach, which I argue implausibly overworks the aspects of Aristotle's thought it appeals to. I then outline the shape of a deeper and more general, and as yet unanswered, problem facing neo-Aristotelian accounts: how to justify the claim that the point of a just society is to assist or enable its members to flourish.|
