Rawls, bioscience, Habermas

A subscriber to the largely-sleeping Rawls group at Yahoo! indicated yesterday that he has an interest in "the use of Rawlsian justice as a normative framework for the distribution of biomedical benefits (e.g. healthcare, genetics, enhancement, etc.)," then kindly sent me a message indicating that "I have an essay in progress on Rawls (temporarily on hold); at some point I will submit some material for discussion."

I replied (in a less-formatted email that was otherwise identical):

Stefan Cojocaru,

Thanks for the note! I look forward to your essay.
