(p.233) CHAPTER 10 Do We Have a Right to Common Goods?
Law in the Age of Pluralism

This chapter explores the question of what individuals or groups may have a right to. In particular, it considers the question of whether people can have a right to common goods, such as the flourishing of their culture or national heritage. It first explains the concept of a common good and its distinction from other, similar, concepts such as collective and public goods. It argues that individuals should not have a right to common goods, unless a particular distributive principle applies to the good in question, and then the individual's right is the right to a certain share in that common good. Finally, the chapter explores the question of how this analysis applies to group rights.
