In the 1980s, John Rawls, author of the magisterial book A Theory of Justice, recast his view as a form of political liberalism. This effort culminated in the publication of Rawls's second book, Political Liberalism. The introduction lays out the differences between Theory of Justice and Political Liberalism that are in greatest need of explanation. It introduces the textual and philosophical problems to be addressed by the reading of Rawls's political turn that is developed in this book, and it argues that Rawls can be read as offering a naturalistic theodicy.
