Online Symposium on the Philosophy of Samuel Freeman

The journal Philosophy and Public Issues has just been released with papers by William Edmundson, Jessica Flanagan, Ingrid Salvatore and myself responding to Freeman’s Liberalism and Distributive Justice (Oxford University Press, 2018).

Freeman’s extensive reply discusses a property-owning democracy at length and defends it from various critiques; he also re-formulates his case for workplace democratisation, grounded on the Fair Equality of Opportunity principle and an argument from stability. Check it out!

My paper sets out a further defence of the pre-distributive versus re-distributive distinction as alternative forms of egalitarianism.
