Much has recently been written about the relationship between power, conservative politics, and evangelical religious groups, but very little attention has been paid to so-called "progressive" religious groups among Protestants. Social justice is a concept of fair and just relations between the individual and society, as measured by the distribution of wealth, opportunities for personal activity, and social Western as well as in older Asian cultures, the concept of social justice has often referred to the process of ensuring that individuals fulfill their societal roles and receive what was their due.
Concepts have a particular importance for students of politics. It is no exaggeration to suggest that political argument often boils down to a struggle over the legitimate meaning of terms. Enemies may argue, fight and even go to war, each claiming to be ‘defending freedom’, ‘upholding democracy’ or ‘supporting justice’. Socrates has at last provided a definition of justice. This definition bears strong resemblance to the two definitions of justice put forward in Book I. Cephalus ventured that justice was the honoring of legal obligations, while his son Polemarchus suggested that justice amounts to helping one’s friends and harming one’s enemies.

This is a very important book. It provides a solid, philosophical argument that true justice has been perverted by the concept of "social" justice.

As Swift points out, academic political philosophy was either ‘the history of political thought’ or ‘quasi-technical linguistic analysis of the meaning of political concepts’.

Since individuals, dominated by their own desires and lusts, would vie for power and become embroiled in political conflict, democracy would tend toward entropy. A just society, by contrast, would be one in which the wise ruled and members of other strata knew their place.
Plato’s entire discussion of justice in the polity is very involved. Procedural justice is concerned with fair, or due, process and includes concepts such as fair legal procedures and fair trials. Rights are also an important concept in political thought.
In his new book, Utopophobia: On the Limits (If Any) of Political Philosophy (Princeton University Press, ), David Estlund explores the question of whether proposed principles of justice are defective strictly in virtue of being unrealistic.
