John Rawls, the James Bryant Conant University Professor Emeritus, whose 1971 book, “A Theory of Justice” argued persuasively for a political philosophy based on equality and individual rights, died Sunday (Nov 24) at the age of 81. Rawls is considered by many to be the most important political philosopher of the second half of the 20th century and a powerful advocate of the liberal perspective. File photo from March 1990.
