_"A book of quick and sharp thoughts on a grand theme is a novel way of paying
tribute to a leading philosopher. But it has worked beautifully here, both as
a stimulating book of ideas on justice, and as a fitting recognition of the
intellectual contributions of Philippe Van Parijs, who is one of the most
original and most creative thinkers of our time."_

**Amartya Sen, Harvard University, 1998 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences**

This book brings together fifty of today's finest thinkers. They were asked to
let their imaginations run free to advance new ideas on a wide range of social
and political issues. They did so as friends, on the occasion of Philippe Van
Parijs's sixtieth birthday. Rather than restricting themselves to comments on
his numerous writings, the authors engage with the topics on which he has
focused his attention over the years, especially with the various dimensions
of justice, its scope, and its demands. They discuss issues ranging from the
fair distribution of marriage opportunities to the limits of argumentation in
a democracy, the deep roots of inequality, the challenges to basic income and
the requirements of linguistic justice. They provide ample food for thought
for both academic and general readers.
