Pluralism, Justice, and Equality

Richard J. Arneson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Richard Arneson argues that Michael Walzer's theory of complex equality is not sufficiently egalitarian, as it permits any degree of inequality. Arneson claims that David Miller's reinterpretation of the notion of complex equality as social equality does not succeed in replacing the ideal of distributive equality.
