"What's" is an abbreviation of "what is". If you Google "at stake", this is what you get. Does that help?

Quote from a Harvard open course:
Now in many ways Aristotle’s idea of justice is intuitively very powerful, in some ways it’s strange. I want to bring out both its power, its possibility and its strangeness so that we can see what’s at stake in this whole debate about justice and whether it’s tied to desert and virtue.
What is 'what’s at stake ' suppose to mean here?
Does anyone else find it odd that the passage uses "both" to refer to three things?
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I missed that.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Thank you so much.
