The book reviews philosophical approaches of justice charts that rise and fall of equity theory in psychology, and describes the conceptual turmoil that has resulted since its decline. However, in the second part of the book, it is argued that by combining the results of modern psychological research into justice and sociobiology with our knowledge of the ancient philosophical traditions of justice, and tracing some of the historical development of these traditions, it may be possible to define a fundamental, unifying, core principle of justice, and to gain a unique insight into the roots of the problems that now confront theorists and researchers in the area.
