So that for present purposes the importance of Rawls' A Theory of [ustice lies in its being a particularly comprehensive and influential example of this tendency. It provides a distinctively modem opportunity to discem and articulate what might be called 'the logic of the politicization of morality'. 27 28 An Audience for Moral Philosophy? 11 Rawls locates his theory of justice within the social contract tradition, and he calls it the theory of 'justice as fairness' (11) . Justice as fairness is said to be apart of a more general view 'suggested by the name "rightness as fairness" , (17), the 'intuitive idea' of which is this: 'the concept of something's being right is the same as, or better, may be replaced by, the concept of its being in accordance with the principles that in the original position would be acknowledged to apply to things of its kind' (111).

These are things that an rational men are presumed to want, whatever else they may want, that is, whatever their desires, aspirations and conceptions of the good may turn out to be once the veil of ignorance has been lifted (62 and 92). Rawls says of the parties in the original position, 'Guided by the theory of the good and the general facts of moral psychology, their deliberations are no longer guesswork' (143) .
