Michael Sandel on Subjectivity - Dictionary of Arguments

Brocker I 672
Subjectivity/SandelVsRawls/Sandel: In its supposed primordial state, Rawls presupposes a certain anthropology for a society to be established: in Rawls, the identity of subjects is not determined by their social relationships and just as little by inter-subjectivity. This is connected with the fact that in the assumed initial situation there should be a "mutual disinterest" between the subjects. (1)
Brocker I 673
Goals/Purposes: according to Rawls, should also not be constitutive for the identity of a subject. Rawls's subject has its goals as something external. This would be the "concept of a subject of property that is already individualized and given before its purposes". (2)
Self/Rawls/Sandel: Sandel describes this concept of a subject as that of an "unencumbered self" (3). See Rawls/Sandel.
