    Lexington Community Education presents:  Dr. Thomas M. Scanlon on the Philosophy of John Rawls

    John Rawls, a Lexington resident from 1960 until his death in 2002, is the most important political philosopher of the twentieth century. His articles and books, including A Theory of Justice, and Political Liberalism have redefined our understanding of "justice as fairness" and continue to influence politics and power structures around the world. Awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Bill Clinton in 1999, Harvard Professor John Rawls was both a local and national treasure. Lexington Community Education is honored to welcome Rawls' student, colleague and friend Thomas M. Scanlon, Jr., Harvard University's Alford Professor of Natural Religion, Moral Philosophy, and Civil Polity, as he explains the main ideas of Rawls' work, its importance within philosophy, and its relation to our political experience. Join us as we honor the memory, and gain a better understanding of the mind of this local giant of practical, political philosophy.  This event is free, but pre-registration is strongly suggested by calling Lexington Community Education at 781 862 8043.
