Abstract

The theme of justice in the economics and, in particular, the theme of distributive justice is the subject of heated controversy as distributive justice raises critical questions such as, for example, in the case of migration or the inequality of wages. But the question of justice is also referred to the problems of the natural environment. In general, the theories that have tried to respond to complex problems put in place by the theme of Justice all have a moral and philosophical foundation. This paper aims to analyze and comment on the arguments contained in the volume edited by Villani and Mazzocchi “Ethics, Economics and Principles of Justice” in order to highlight the importance of the debate around the issue of distributive justice, the problems posed by theories based on contractualism, specifying the various positions of economists, philosophers, sociologists, historians. Among their theoretical positions, this contribution underlines the different approaches that counteract. On the one hand, the aim for absolute values and the search for permanent justice, on the other hand, the relativism dictated by history and tradition.
