Abstract

What determines the content of justice? The consensus among subjects, justified by social contact, is one answer to this question. Current liberalism maintains that consensus is constructed by social contract - but does the principle of consensus among subjects really lead to the theory of justice? It is important to notice that the current theory of consensus implies that those who cannot satisfactorily participate in consensus are no longer subjects. This article insists that justice should not be based on consensus, but understood as a process of falsification, implying that justice should also remain provi sional.
