Only Connect: Howards End and Theories of Justice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The process of abstraction entailed in theorising models of justice has famously fed the elision of personal and institutional ethics. In Howards End, Forster, through fiction, produces a developed examination of the necessary linkage between the worlds of the abstract and the contingent, a linkage epitomised by his injunction to “only connect.”
