An introduction to theories of judgement in contemporary political and moral philosophy. The author offers a critical examination of judgement and normative validity in the work of Rawls, Habermas, Ackerman, Michaelman and Dworkin. This includes an historical overview of the judgement model in contemporary political philosophy - focusing on Rawls' position on justice as fairness and Habermas on the discourse theory of law and the public sphere. There is also an examination of situated judgement, the work of Ackerman on the function of constitutions, and Michaelman on deliberative democracy. The book concludes with a thorough discussion of universalism and contemporary liberalism, the judgement view of justice and impartiality.
