Guilty or not guilty? | Philosophy homework help

  

1. Rawls vs. Nozick

You are a lawyer representing an unknown client in writing the constitution for a new nation of Freedonia. Argue for either John Rawls’s conception of the Fair Equality of Opportunity Principle (which Nozick would reject if it entails government action to redress inequalities of opportunity) and the Difference Principle or for Robert Nozick’s principles of justice in holdings as part of that constitution. Present arguments for both sides on this position—including especially Nozick’s Wilt Chamberlain example—critique both arguments (based on critiques from readings or class) and provide your own original response to the critiques of the position you support 

  

Formal requirements:

Essay should be 3-4 pages (1000-1200 words) double-spaced, 12 pt. font with one inch margins. Pages should be numbered, with a title page that is not numbered. There should be no footnotes. Any notes should be endnotes. If you cite sources, you may use any established style guide, but philosophers use Chicago style.
