The paper documents some respects in which the work of the political philosopher, John Rawls, is Cartesian. It sets out some limitations of Rawls’ thought that flow directly from this Cartesian influence. It goes on to argue that the thought of Søren Kierkegaard offers an alternative that can be useful in the political domain. Finally, some similarities between the work of Kierkegaard and that of Confucius are noted.
