In Amartya Sen's reflection, the possibility of justice proceeds from the recognition of its essential incompleteness and the consequent impossibility of arriving at representations that are valid once and for all, attesting to the level of the absolute. Sen, on the contrary, moves his considerations from the concrete reality, in which people act and suffer, and therefore places himself in favor of an indulgent acceptance of incompleteness, in a perspective that invites us to recognize ourselves, without worries or innuendos, in this essential defective mode of the human. The result is an idea of possible justice, which asks to be re-discussed continuously, in a public debate, open and inclusive. Sen's idea of justice will then be considered in these pages starting from three key concepts: possibility, incompleteness and concrete universality.
