Consider the following feature of Rawls' theory: "People in the original position---the hypothetical contractors---are placed behind a `veil of ignorance' which makes them unaware of their particular circumstances. Because of this ignorance, they do not know how to be biased in their own favour, and they are apparently forced to act impartially." (Wolff, p.155)
(1) What particular kinds of information are we supposed to become ignorant of behind the veil of ignorance? Spell out more precisely what knowledge we become ignorant of. (2) On the flip side, what kinds of information do we get to keep behind the veil of ignorance? Spell out what knowledge we retain behind the veil of ignorance.
