  1. Two Concepts of Rules.John Rawls & Andrei Korbut - 2013 - Russian Sociological Review 12 (2):16-40.
    In his famous paper John Rawls outlines a version of utilitarianism that takes into account the existing criticism of the utilitarian approach. Author shows that the traditional objections expressed in relation to two test cases of utilitarianism — punishment and promise-keeping — are based on the misunderstanding of utilitarian position, because they don’t make a distinction between justifying a practice and justifying a particular action falling under it.
