106192_cover_page-0001 — копия (2).jpg

The monograph considers and analyzes the tradition of moral philosophy coming from I. Kant in its application to the problem of just law, i.e. just social order. The author reveals the advantages and disadvantages, as well as the characteristic issues of the relevant methodology. For this purpose, the teachings of prominent thinkers of the twentieth century are studied: R. Stammler, P.I. Novgorodtsev, G. Radbruch, J. Rawls, J. Habermas and O. Hoeffe. The advantage of the Kantian (deontological) approach to the issues of justice in relation to competing approaches is argued.

For students, graduate students, teachers, as well as all those interested in the philosophy of law.

The first edition was published in 2017, the second (with changes) in 2021.
