Individualism and Personal Responsibility

(p.194) CHAPTER 8 Individualism and Personal Responsibility
Levelling the Playing Field

Andrew Mason (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Critics of responsibility-sensitive egalitarianism have often claimed that it is individualistic in an objectionable way. ‘Individualism’ is a slippery term that is employed in many different senses. This chapter distinguishes some of these different senses and explores the extent to which responsibility-sensitive egalitarianism counts as individualist in each of them, and it determines what problems it may face as a result.

Keywords:   responsibility-sensitive egalitarianism, individualism, responsibility, individualist
