The aim of this paper is to analyse the problem of the relationship between ethics and public administration. At first, it focuses on the two principles of justice theorized by John Rawls, seeking whether it is possible to derive from them a kind of universal ethical foundation for administrative actions. The work then examines the ‘rule-utilitarianism’ proposed by John C. Harsanyi, meaning it as a viable alternative to the problems raised by the theory of Rawls. The ‘rule-utilitarianism’ is considered as an interesting proposal to rethink the functions of public administration in terms of what we define an ‘ethics of the mirror’: a dramatic process of synthesis between the reforms proposed by the political and legislative power and the needs of an increasingly pluralistic and differentiated society
