Abstract

In this research article a will be specifically focused on the Rawlsian deontological liberalism i.e. the "Priority of right over the good." It is to be observed to explore the thesis of right/good contrast in which priority is ordained to right. This deontological outlook itself seems to have been ontologically designed. Since, the liberal deontological thesis; the priority of right over the good is questioned in its exposition. In addition, priority of right over the good is nothing more than a greater good in liberal political conception of justice as fairness.

In above connection, in this article the various aspects of theory of justice as fairness would be discussed. It is generally believed that Rawls has retreated from the universality of liberalism. He reconsiders his earlier position on the universality of Liberalism, In this regard, he realizes that his standpoint should have been historicist and anti-universalistic. Thus Rawls tries to establish compatibility between his theory of justice as fairness and that of socio-political and economic institutions of liberal political society such as United Silas of America.
