Treating Broome Fairly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


John Broome has developed an elegant and powerful theory of fairness. It is important to lay out his theory afresh because the basic structure of Broome’s theory has been generally misunderstood. Once we understand its general structure, we are in a better position to assess what its normative implications are. In discussing objections that have been raised against Broome’s theory, I will show that these implications are different from what his critics have commonly assumed.
