L'apport de la philosophie sociale à l'économie du bien-être: une question de "procédure" ?

Abstract : Welfare economics uses Bentham's utilitarian criterion or Pareto's unanimity rule, so as to define social justice in terms of optimal allocation of goods between individuals. A roundabout way through social contemporary philosophy emphasizes by contrast the interest of defining justice of a social state as a function of the "procedure", from which the social state stems; fatal injustice of any inevitably impure procedure (Hayek) is opposed to the need of pure procedural justice (Nozick) and to the wills of Harsanyi and Rawls to promote perfect procedural justice. As a matter of fact, these two approaches complete one anther and do not seem to be opposed.
