An Original Omission? Property in Rawls’s Political Thought
By Quentin P. Taylor
This article appeared in the Winter 2004 issue of The Independent Review


John Rawls is widely considered to have been the most important political philosopher of the twentieth century, yet he barely broached the subject of property and ownership. Given his neglect of a topic so vital in the real world and in the history of political thought, Rawls’s theory of “justice as fairness” can hardly be considered complete.
