The Prospect Podcast #112: Liberalism and John Rawls, with Katrina Forrester
How the 20th century political philosopher dominated the discipline—and where liberalism goes from here
Brexit, Trump, international protests, the era of the “strongman”: Is liberalism really in crisis, or will it come out of this historical period changed, but unscathed? Political theorist Katrina Forrester joins the Prospect podcast to talk about liberalism past and present, and the thought of John Rawls.
Katrina’s book, In the Shadow of Justice: Postwar Liberalism and the Remaking of Political Philosophy is published by Princeton University Press.
