Justice as Fairness, The Argument from the Original Position (Part 3)

John Rawls warns against a political life dominated by dogmatic fanaticism or apathetic resignation. The University of Tennessee Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy and the Knox County Public Library invite you to participate in a study of his book, Justice as Fairness: A restatement. Each podcast episode is in a discussion format facilitated by a University of Tennessee faculty member with expertise on Rawls's work. No previous knowledge of Rawls's work is expected.

This is part three, The Argument from the Original Position, with Dr. Iris Goodwin of the College of Law (recorded February 8, 2010).
