    social meanings

    Quote from A harvard open course:
    Justice is relative to social meanings. A given society is just if its substantive life is lived in a certain way that is faithful to the shared understandings of the members.
    What does "social meanings" mean?
    Thanks.

    Re: social meanings

    Well, I guess that's what the course wants you to figure out.

    Re: social meanings

    It would seem to mean "the shared understandings of the members of the society."
