John Rawls’s Theory of Justice is a work of political philosophy and ethics. It was originally published in 1971 and revised in both 1975 (for the translated editions) and 1999. In A Theory of Justice, Rawls attempts to solve the problem of distributive justice (the just distribution of goods in a society) by utilising a variant of the familiar device of the social contract. The resultant theory is known as “Justice as Fairness”, from which Rawls derives his two principles of justice: the liberty principle and the difference principle

Prof. Dr. Manuel Knoll was born in Munich, Germany in 1964.
In 2000 he earned a PhD in Philosophy, Political Science and History from the University of Munich. Since 1998 he has been lecturing at the University of Munich and at the Munich School of Political Science.
In 2008 he achieved his habilitation and venia legendi in Political Theory and Philosophy. In 2011 he became a Professor of Philosophy at Fatih University, Istanbul.
