Social Justice After the “Death of the Social”

Pat O’Malley’s essay is a somber reflection on the fate of “social justice” as a notion in a world shaped by “the death of the social.” He believes Social Justice has served to keep that notion of justice alive, has helped to reconfigure social justice (via Marx, Foucault, and others), and has combated a U.S. and Anglo-centric vision of politics because of the prominence of its “Americas perspective.”
