John Rawls
Professor Rawls earned his A.B. and Ph.D. degrees in philosophy from Princeton University and was a Fulbright Scholar at Christ Church, Oxford University. In addition to teaching at Harvard, he held appointments at Cornell University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The author of A Theory of Justice and Political Liberalism, Professor Rawls was a member of the American Philosophical Association and Phi Beta Kappa. He served as President of the American Society for Political and Legal Philosophy and of the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association. His research centered on problems of justice and moral philosophy. In 1997, Professor Rawls was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws by Harvard University.

I have read an interesting speech by Dr Fooladvand who explains the key points of Rawls’s thought (this speech is in Farsi). The Original Position most lasting contribution of John Rawls to theorizing about social justice is really interesting.
