ABOUT THE BOOK

The Realm between Perfect Justice and Minimising Injustice analysing various issues concerning justice while taking into account the philosophical concepts like dignity, autonomy, perfection, fairness, wellbeing, women's equality and entitlement etc. It establishes how the notion of perfect justi is foundational, unified with principles and even deontological; whereas minimizing injustice emerges out of the struggle against human deprivation, ill health, illiteracy in general and various forms of injustices relating to women in particular. It examines the notion of perfect justice on the basis of Immanuel Kant's enlightenment rationality and morality which transforms an individual behaviour in such a way that everyone can act rationally to transform oneself and society as well. The philosophical insight into perfect justice has been carried forward by John Rawls by modifying social contract theory and reformulating the principles of justice to be applied to the institutions.

The book seek to address questions concerning institutional arrangement to justice are not sufficient conditions because society consists of human beings who are outside the institutions and the latter gets affected by the former. More importantly, the search for perfect justice could distract us from tackling real-life, immediate injustices such as poverty, gender discrimination relating to basic education, health care, nutritional food, other opportunities, etc., which deprives people's basic freedom to pursue good life. In order to minimise injustices, capability approach of Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum plays an important role which focuses directly on people's beings and doing, i.e. on their capabilities to function. This book is an attempt to help the readers to learn about the Western as well as Indian perspective of justice on the basis of Niti and Nyaya and to think an inclusive notion of justice where justice in the perfect sense of the term is required as an ideal to be attained and minimizing injustice would be the process to achieve the same in terms of capability building, well-being and gender equality.
