This is a follow-up to question 1522 [www.askphilosophers/question/1522). In my language, there is a single word for "justice" and "fairness" ("justiça"). If someone in an English-speaking movie says "That ain't fair!", the translation will probably use our word for "just".
So, it is really very difficult for me to understand Rawls's claim that justice is fairness. How could justiça not be justiça?
