SILVEIRA, Denis Coitinho. John Rawls theory of justice: between liberalism and comunitarism. Trans/Form/Ação [online]. 2007, vol.30, n.1, pp.169-190. ISSN 1980-539X.

The aim of his article is to characterize the John Rawls's theory of justice as fairness developed in A Theory of Justice (1971), Political Liberalism (1993), Replay to Habermas (1995) and Justice as Fairness: A Restatement (2001), with a view to identifying the convergent points between deontological conception with teleological characteristics and identify a substantive conception of justice, not purely procedural, which is universalist albeit not transcendental, making possible an approach between communitarian and liberal ethical theories.

Keywords : justice as fairness; deontological/teleological; procedural/substantive; John Rawls.
