Titel: Rational Choice Fundierungen von Gerechtigkeitsprinzipien
Autor: Johannes Schmidt
Abstract: The paper draws on a conceptual analysis of rational choice justifications of conceptions of justice. It is argued that the concept of justice can be reduced to two independent moral dimensions. From this conceptual thesis a simple conceptional criterion is derived which any powerful theory of rational choice theories of justice. It is shown that there is but one variant of the rational choice approach which in substantiating principles of justice does not violate this criterion.
