ABSTRACT
In this paper I identify two different lockean concepts of justice -"proprietary justice" and "justice as fairness"– and examine the relationship between each of them and charity in John Locke's theory of property. As I try to show, in both cases Locke considers that charity may have priority over justice. This undermines the classical interpretation of Locke as a defender of unlimited capitalistic appropriation and provides additional evidence supporting Locke's acceptation of a minimal redistributive system which should guarantee the material welfare of non-appropriators.
