Philosophical discussions of justice have typically presented it as an ideal that is not yet given or realised. However, this conception of justice often carries with it the implication that justice is not something that can properly take place now. In conjunction with the Legal Theory subject group at the LSE Law Department, we are running a special programme of three lectures to be held at the LSE in the Spring term of 2007, which reflect on the relation between a justice that remains to come and a justice that is striven for (and perhaps achieved) here and now.
