Notice the discussion of “justice” in Lewis,op. cit., p. 482. In an earlier article Lewis “explicates” the concept of “liberty” in such a way as to arrive at rather specific rules such as that which prescribes that any individual has the right to secede from a group or community whose laws he disapproves. Cf.La Revue Internationale de Philosophie, Vol. II (1946).
