    Equality, justice, and rectification: an exploration in normative sociology by Derek L. Phillips 1 edition - first published in Download DAISY. In A Theory of Justice Rawls argues, however, that in constructing a social contract, liberty ought to be placed before equality, so that an increment in equality brought about by a sacrifice of liberty is unjustified. When liberty is not at issue, inequality is still justified if it is to the advantage of the least favored members of society.

    In this book, Shlomi Segall formulates a 'luck egalitarian' conception of justice and applies that conception to the policy areas of hiring, education, upbringing, and health. He also argues for the superiority of his conception of justice over rival luck egalitarian and 'relational egalitarian' views. The book is unapologetic about the absence of an overall theory or coherent framework for addressing justice and health care or justice in health. Nor does it include analysis of other major endeavors to do so, such as those found, for example, in The Ends of Human Life, [1] Just Health, [2] Health and Social Justice, [3] and Social Justice.

    Extended Bibliography on Distributive Justice. Aaron, Henry J. and Munnell, Alicia H., , “Reassessing the Role for Wealth Transfer Taxes,” National Tax.   The practical impossibility of rectification and the consequent potential to perpetuate historical injustices. The questionable theory of property ownership that accompanies it. Many would argue that property rights are only possible within a legal and political framework and that this framework requires the cooperation of others.

Most political philosophers rejected Nozick’s entitlement perspective, for its shaky foundation and lack of practical relevance. This paper therefore attempts to. Rectification may be called for in cases of injustice involving voluntary transactions like trade or involuntary transactions like theft or assault.

Justice is restored in a court case, where the judge ensures that the gains and losses of both parties are equaled out, thus restoring a mean. Justice must and rectification book distributed proportionately. Aristotle on Rectification. The judge is like someone justice upon to restore equality to a line and rectification book has been “divided into two unequal parts” and in order to do so “were to cut off from the greater that by which it exceeds the half, and to add this to the less.” Aristotle → Nicomachean Ethics → Book Ⅴ (justice).

Robert Nozick - Robert Nozick - The entitlement theory of justice: Nozick’s vision of legitimate state power thus contrasts markedly with that of Rawls and his followers.

Rawls argues that the state should have whatever powers are necessary to ensure that those citizens who are least well-off are as well-off as they can be (though these powers must be consistent with a variety of basic. The Principles on Equality were agreed by a group of experts at a conference entitled Principles on Equality and the Development of Legal Standards on Equality, organised by The Equal Rights Trust on 3 - 5 April in London.

Participants of different backgrounds, including academics, legal practitioners and human rights activists from all regions of the world took part in this conference.

Entitlement theory is a theory of distributive justice and private property created by Robert Nozick in chapters 7 and 8 of his book Anarchy, State, and theory is Nozick's attempt to describe "justice in holdings" (Nozick )—or what can be said about and done with the property people own when viewed from a principle of justice.

Nozick in his book “Anarchy, state and Utopia” argues about distribution of property and states justice in three ideas, which are justice in acquisition, justice in transfer, and rectification of injustice.

Justice in acquisition is finding a place, property or object and calming your rights over it before anyone else does. justice is the same as Rhadamanthea n justice, i.e.

lex talionis, then reciprocity (in its c ommon meaning of lex talionis) would fit rectifica tory justice (contra Aristotle's clai m).

Equality, Justice and Rectification: An Exploration in Normative Sociology Derek L. Phillips Academic Press pp. £ Derek Phillips's Equality, Justice and Rectification situates itself in a tra-dition of political theorizing stemming from Locke, Hobbes and Hume and most recently revived in what is rapidly becoming a new genre of.

The principles of equity, equality, and need are most relevant in the context of distributive justice, but might play a role in a variety of social justice issues. These principles all appeal to the notion of desert, the idea that fair treatment is a matter of giving people what they deserve.

On the other hand, rectificatory justice is practiced after injustice is done, and the principle regulating the return to the injured party is arithmetical equality: the injured party will receive a portion from the injuring party that will equalise the difference between them caused.

This book combines the theoretical examination of rectificatory justice with leading scholars working through its meaning and use. 'Injustice and Rectification' is a book for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

A significant problem, I argue, emerges in Aristotle’s discussion of fairness in distribution and rectification. Political justice and the rule of law seem to require what Aristotle terms an “arithmetical ” form of equality that assumes that all persons are equal and should receive equal shares.

Robert Nozick in his famous book Anarchy, State and Utopia () responded to, in part, John Rawls’ distribution theory as articulated in the latter’s celebrated book A Theory of Justice () with the former’s entitlement theory.

Nozick calls Rawls’ distribution theory a patterned theory. The authors explore the demands of egalitarian justice, addressing issues of distribution and rectification, but equally investigating what it means for people to be equals as producers and communicators of knowledge or as members of subcultures, and considering what it would take for a society to achieve gender and racial equality.
