Rawls’ Theory of Justice established contractualism as one of the main contemporary views in moral and political philosophy. The many variants of contractualism that have since been offered testify of its remarkable and continuous significance. This multiplicity itself nonetheless raises some questions about the nature, scope and validity of contractualist theory. The aim of this conference is to question contractualism's structure, its grounds and its consequences.
