ABSTRACT. The purpose of this article is to gain a deeper understanding of Rawls’s view of political liberalism, his theory of the person, his account of citizenship, and his normative individualism. The results of the current study converge with prior research on Rawls’s emphasis on freedom and individual choice, his political vision of the person, his backing of the primacy of the right over the good, and his account of the advancement of the sense of justice. These findings highlight the importance of examining Rawls’s interpretation of social stability, his grounds for recasting justice as fairness, his liberal principle of legitimacy, and the role of government in Rawls’s conception. pp. 73–80
