“justice is a social value of very great importance, and injustice an evil.”


                What I expect to learn:  

·         I expect to learn everything about The Need for More Than Justice and to Ms. Annette Baier




                              Annette Baier states that the shortcommings in our society are based on justice. For me, Gilligan’s position is said to be contrasting Kohlberg’s idea becasue of the care and jsutice perspective. Our opnions, suggestions and our ideas are  very important because it will have an effect on the things that we do to our life nad to our society. Fighting our need for more than justice is what we seek but what is beyond justice? Kohlberg’s theory was categorized into 3 levels: pre-conventional, conventional, and post-conventional. According to the book, Kohlberg’s version of moral maturity aspect for person and for their rights are as equals did not shared by many men, and the women most likely to speak with different opinions.

                 What I've learned:


·         I have now deeply understood the true meaning of The Need for More Than Justice that Ms. Annette Baier is talking  about  


                Integrative Questions:

1.     What is justice perspective?

2.     To know more about moral theory related to justice

3.     Are justice considered as blind and one eyed?

4.     Explain the moral theory.

5.     What do you mean by counterculture?





1.    Distinguish between the justice and care perspective. According to Gilligan, how do these perspectives develop?

Gilligan said that woman are most unlikely to take only justice perspective, since the care perspective is a women’s natural role as the primary caretakers of young children.


2.     Explain Kohlberg’s theory of moral development. What criticisms do Gilligan and Baier make of this theory?

The concept of identity expands to include the experience of interconnection.

3.     Baier says there are three important differences between Kantian liberals and their critics. What are these differences?

·         The relative weight put on relationships between equal

·         The relative weight put on freedom of choice

·         The authority of intellect over emotions


4.    Why does Baier attack the Kantian view that the reason should control unruly passions?

She’s selfish and only open to her own theory and opnion.
