The introduction summarizes the aims of the book and gives preliminary definitions of its central terms: habilitation, basic justice, basic good health, and robustly healthy agency. It explains the sense in which the book is offered as a framework for normative work on basic distributive justice generally, rather than as a competing normative theory of justice. The introduction concludes with an overview of the organizational plan of the book, and then appends an account of the motivation for pursuing this project.
