This essay focuses on each of these domains.We apply it to individual actions, to laws, and to public policies. And we think in each case that if they are unjust this is a strong, maybe even conclusive, reason to reject them.

The idea of justice occupies centre stage both in ethics, and in legal and political philosophy. We apply it to individual actions, to laws, and to public policies. And we think in each case that if they are unjust this is a strong, maybe even conclusive, reason to reject them.
John Rawls famously described it as ‘the first virtue of social institutions’ (Rawls 1971, p.3; Rawls, 1999, p.3). We might debate which of these realms of practical philosophy has first claim on justice. For example, and only derivatively a property of individuals and other institutions? . But it is probably more enlightening to accept that the idea has over time sunk deep roots in each of these domains. And to try to make sense of such a wide-ranging concept by identifying elements that are present whenever justice is invoke. But also examining the different forms it takes in various practical contexts. This article aims to provide a general map of the ways in which justice has been understand by philosophers, past and present.
We then examine some major conceptual contrasts: between conservative and ideal justice, between corrective and distributive justice. Between procedural and substantive justice, and between comparative and non-comparative justice. Next we turn to questions of scope: to who or what do principles of justice apply.
We ask whether non-human animals can be subjects of justice. Whether justice applies only between people who already stand in a particular kind of relationship to one another. And whether individual people continue to have duties of justice once justice-base institutions have been created. We then examine three overarching theories that might serve to unify the different forms of justice. Utilitarianism, contractarianism and egalitarianism. But it seems, in conclusion, that no such theory is likely be successful.
