According to the four philosophers namely; Kant, Buddha, Plato and Jean-Paul Sartre, justice and injustice are viewed differently.

Majority of individuals are not this contemplatively alert of themselves. Sartre assumed this was because human beings have an affinity to see themselves as able, open-ended, incomplete and work in progress.
