Re: Re: Re: What is justice?
The difficulty with justice is its variability in different spatial and temporal contexts .Today we call the burning of St.Joan a barbarous thing but at the time it took place not many consciences were disturbed. Similarly in the religious law practised in the Moslem countries ,several things which are shocking to another culture take place day in and day out and not many raise heir voices in those places. Does that mean that there is nothing called the absolute justice ,a kind of universal justice which applies to all places and times .The second issue is whether justice applies only to man's relationship with a fellow-human or whether man vs.other fellow-creatures justice is also to be thought of. Since we cannot decide all this we lapse into what we know best-a few cliches about universal brotherhood,humanism,etc.
