Chapter 5 examines the contemporary relevance of a sense of justice—and specifically the accounts of a sense of justice in Rawls and the Analects—and argues that a sense of justice is important for us today. It begins by addressing the contemporary relevance of a sense of justice for modern liberal democracies. Then it addresses the relevance of a sense of justice for contemporary China. Finally, it considers the capacity for a sense of justice in relation to international justice.
