Oxford Handbook of Distributive Justice

The Oxford Handbook of Distributive Justice

Edited by Serena Olsaretti

(Oxford University Press, June 2018)

752 pages


Distributive justice has come to the fore in political philosophy in recent decades: how should we arrange our social and economic institutions so as to distribute fairly the benefits and burdens of social cooperation? Thirty-two leading figures from philosophy and political theory present specially written critical assessments of the state of research on a broad range of questions about distributive justice. The first seventeen chapters examine different views of distributive justice and its role in political philosophy, and consider some key methodological questions facing theorists of justice. The remaining fifteen chapters investigate questions about the implementation of distributive justice with regard to a range of aspects of society, including gender, race, the family, education, work, health, language, migration, and climate change.
