Re: Social Justice

Another book that shouldn’t be overlooked in this regard is the late Robert Nozick’s Anarchy, State, and Utopia. He brilliantly explored what he called “end-state” theories of justice (things are unjust if the richest has more than X times the wealth of the poorest) and historical theories of justice (where you have to look at the nature of the transactions that led to each person’s degree of wealth or poverty).

Too bad that Tritton didn’t look for advice on readings for his course at PBC before he taught it!
