Equal Justice

Eric Rakowski


This book sets forth a novel theory of distributive justice premised on the fundamental moral equality of persons. The book is divided into three main parts: Part I explains a theory of justice, called “equality of fortune,” Part II outlines a theory of strict liability for tortious conduct, and Part III is concerned with problems unique to the allocation of life-saving resources.

Keywords: distributive justice, moral equality, moral theory, tortious conduct, life-saving resources
