“Justice”:  How?

Thoughts and experiences

“Justice” is perceived as a simple and inescapable social-ethical imperative. However the way of its realization is  disputed and contrasted.

You may deal with the topic according to your experience and from your own point of view.

Following frames are suggested, however, for the discussion:

I.      To be Righteous: Justice and Memory / Justice and Knowledge

“Justice” is a “relation” between human beings (individuals, generations, people coming from different cultures, but also between human beings and their environment (nature, animals). It is a way of thinking and acting by processing the knowledges of the past and the present in order to understand the conditions in which people live.

II.      Right to “Justice”: Rights and Law

The right to enjoy “justice”  is one of the fundamental individual right. On the other hand the principle of “Justice” has social contents. This antinomy needs a reflection on the role of the Law.

III.      Justice and Solidarity

Solidarity often confines itself to redress some intolerably oppressive conditions. But between  Solidarity and Justice there is a strict one-for-one relationships: it cannot be reduced to a contingent and occasional act

IV.      Representations of Justice

The many representation of “Justice” in the Myth, Literature and Art reveals some aspects of the “drama” od the Justice along the human History.

V.      Experiences
