(p.1) Introduction
Pluralism, Justice, and Equality

David Miller (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

David Miller outlines the central ideas of Michael Walzer's Spheres of Justice, focusing on the notions of political community, social goods, and complex equality. He critically examines Walzer's reliance on the interpretative method in determining the requirements of distributive justice. Miller argues that the concept of complex equality needs to be interpreted alongside that of equal citizenship.

Keywords:   citizenship, complex equality, distributive justice, interpretative method, political community, social good, spheres of justice, Michael Walzer
