Théorie de la justice et idéologie : Hume et Rawls.

Abstract : The specification of the "circumstances of justice" is not the only point on which Rawls agrees with Hume. If Rawls rejects the utilitarian theory of impartiality which is "reminiscent of Hume", he does not consider him as "strictly speaking utilitarian". Indeed, Rawls thinks that Hume has well understood that institutions have to be to the advantage of everyone. Besides, Hume and Rawls agree in thinking that the stability of justice involves a public sense of justice. Finally, the idea of "pure procedural justice" is shared by these authors: both have rejected any independent criterion for the right result, so that the ways they were criticized are rather similar.
