Was heißt Gerechtigkeit heute?

Zur Aktualität eines umkämpften Ideals

15 November 2010, 7.30pm

Frankfurter Rundschau / Depot Sachsenhausen / Karl-Gerold-Platz 1 / Frankfurt am Main

To open the series of lectures and discussions, the concept of justice will be examined from different perspectives and within different horizons of experience. We encounter justice in the most diverse domains as an ideal to which different, and often conflicting, social actors appeal. Each individual judges intuitively whether the actions of others seem just to him, though also whether his own conduct is just towards others. But what does justice mean and what does it comprise? With reference to what standards and criteria can what is just be judged? What are the implications of a negotiated concept of justice for the different areas of conduct? And what is the point of the quest for justice? Is there even an attainable ideal?
