Irresponsible Equality

The CEU Campus
Thursday, November 17, 2016, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

In this talk, I will first outline and defend an argument against the existence of moral responsibility. I will then show that this argument enables us to defend a Rawlsian version of egalitarianism, according to which justice permits inequalities only if they make the worst off members of society better off than they would otherwise be. I will end by outlining the practical implications of my defence of this view.
