Thomas Pogge on Studying Under John Rawls

John Rawls is my hero, but I never met him. So, I love hearing personal experiences like that of Thomas Pogge. And to think…I have been accused of hero worship. 🙂

I tend to side more with Pogge on the idea of global justice than I do Rawls. However, as Pogge mentions, many ideas about global justice, including the work of Pogge himself, have been directly influenced by the Rawlsian concept of justice.
