Resumen

BENFELD, Johann S. "Justice as Fairness" and the Idea of Reflective Equilibrium. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2012, n.39, pp.607-635. ISSN 0718-6851.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68512012000200022.

This article deals with the meaning and scope of the idea of "reflective equilibrium" in John Rawls' theory of justice. In order to achieve that goal, it specifies the background of this idea and the way it is treated in Rawls' mature system. Then there is an analysis of some criticisms to the method together with some possible alternatives to overcome them. Finally, it examines whether the idea of "reflective equilibrium" is capable of achieving the goal proposed by Rawls, which is justifying the reasonableness of the elements that fit in the original position as model ideas, benchmark criteria for the principles of justice and the very principles that define the concept of justice as fairness.

Palabras clave : John Rawls; Justice as fairness; Reflexive equilibrium; Principles of justice.
