Examines Dworkin's analysis of, and proposed solution to, the problem for egalitarian justice by natural differences in individual talent. Egalitarians seek a distribution that is ambition (or choice) sensitive but endowment insensitive. Dworkin's diagnosis of the nature of the problem posed by unequal natural endowment is flawed and his attempt to develop a theory of redistributive taxation on a complex hypothetical insurance market scheme faces many serious objections.
