Student Scholarship Recognition Day (SSRD) was created by the late CLA Dean Larry Cress. The main goal was to provide an avenue for Willamette students to share their exemplary work with their peers, educators, friends, and family. Another goal was to include the papers and projects presented during in a digital archive of student work completed at Willamette. Visit the SSRD web site.

In A Theory of Justice, Rawls claims that his two‐principle society will be the best society for forming self‐respect among its citizens. He thinks that the two principles will cause people to realize that society is working towards their best interests, and that this will make them feel that they are worthwhile to society, which will foster a sense of self‐respect. In this paper, I will argue that Rawls’s notion of self‐respect is incoherent given
the context of the rest of his theory.
