Justice as Fair Reciprocity

Justice as Fair Reciprocity

(p.77) Chapter 4 Justice as Fair Reciprocity
The Civic Minimum

Stuart White (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the conception of justice as fair reciprocity. In its non-ideal form, fair reciprocity demands that institutions governing economic life satisfy a threshold level of absolute and relative economic opportunity. Specifying this threshold should address a long-standing aspiration of the modern egalitarian movement – the creation of a society that has abolished the bads classically associated with the proletarian condition: brute luck poverty, market insecurity and the risk of domination by others, lack of opportunity for self-realization in work, and class division based on unequal access to education and wealth.

Keywords:   justice, fair reciprocity, egalitarian movement
