Adler: The Mistake of Giving Primacy of the Right Over the Good

by Mortimer J. Adler, Ph.D. The domain of justice is divided into two main spheres of interest.

The other is concerned with the justice of the state--its form of government and its laws, its political [...]

Our intellect considers the extension of the universal and reflects on the contents of an idea to see how it applies to its subjects precisely as a universal, that is, whether as their [...]

Does the End Justify the Means?

Does the End Justify the Means?

by Mortimer J. Adler, Ph.D. Does the end justify the means? Can it sometimes be right to use a bad means to achieve a good end?
