Free and Equal By Daniel Chandler AudioBook summary

Imagine: You are designing a society, but you don’t know who you’ll be within it—rich or poor, man or woman, gay or straight. What would you want that society to look like?

This is the revolutionary thought experiment proposed by the twentieth century’s greatest political philosopher, John Rawls. As economist and philosopher Daniel Chandler argues in this hugely ambitious and exhilarating manifesto, it is by rediscovering Rawls that we can find a way out of the escalating crises that are devastating our world today.

“A beautifully written and compelling argument that Rawlsian political philosophy can heal our broken societies.”—Sir Angus Deaton, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics • “This book will meet a very important need.”—Amartya Sen, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics

“Intellectually rigorous and full of hope.”—Zadie Smith, bestselling author of White Teeth and The Fraud “A must-read!”—Thomas Piketty, bestselling author of Capital in the Twenty-First Century

Taking Rawls’s humane and egalitarian liberalism as his starting point, Chandler builds a powerful case for a new progressive agenda that would fundamentally reshape our societies for the better. He shows how we can protect free speech and transcend the culture wars; get money out of politics; and create an economy where everyone has the chance to fulfil their potential, where prosperity is widely shared, and which operates within the limits of our finite planet.
