John Rawls: Getting beyond Social Choice Theory

I will present first the main tenets of Arrovian social choice theory,
and explain its relationship to decision and game theory. Then I will
offer conjectures why it was thought by many that this theory could
ground political philosophy. At the end, I will sketch John Rawls'
solution to the social choice problem.
