John Stuart Mill on Justice - Dictionary of Arguments
Höffe I 350
Justice/Mill/Höffe: (...) [Mill] distinguishes (...) different views of justice, such as the commandment to respect a person's legally guaranteed rights, to give everyone what he or she deserves, and the ideas of impartiality and equality.
He then recognizes the traditional distinction between perfect (justice) and imperfect (charity) duties. Finally, he claims that to have a right means to have something that society should protect for no other reason than general utility(1). >Utilitarianism/Mill.
