A visualization of a theory of justice

In all seriousness, when political philosophers write about justice, they rarely rely on any figures, images, or other forms of visualization to make their points. Plato’s Republic, for example, consists of over 500 pages of dense philosophical argumentation (or an extended prank), yet one of the most memorable parts of his work is the allegory of the cave. So, why don’t the great academic philosophers of our day, like the late Derek Parfit or the late John Rawls, include more images or visualizations of their ideas in their works?

    Unseen in this image, off to the right, is a hook that is saying “Dinner.”

    By the way, something is funny with this site — when one makes a comment, then hits the back button to return to the main flow of the blog, one can wind up elsewhere in the chronology, and the chronology itself gets messed up, with (for example) post dates suddenly jumping from September to March. I didn’t recall this being the case before — it’s like there is now some Tumblr-like feature here that loses track of where the reader is after making a comment. (Solution: readers should keep up to date reading the blog.)

    • I have a conjecture as to what could be happening: I have noticed that at the bottom of each post, WordPress will link to theee other posts that might be relevant to the original post under review, so perhaps it is an algorithm that is doing this annoying deed.
