This chapter argues that we need principles of fairness because people disagree about justice. Attractive principles of fairness are unlikely to confer decisional authority on the partisans of just one of the competing views about justice. This chapter compares Rawls' principle of the circumstances of justice with Ronald Dworkin's circumstances of integrity theory.

Keywords: fairness; justice; partisans; Ronald Dworkin; integrity theory
