Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen tackles all the major questions concerning luck egalitarianism, providing deep, penetrating and original discussion of recent academic discourses on distributive justice as well as responses to some of the main objections in the literature. It offers a new answer to the "Why equality?" and "Equality of what?" questions, and provides a robust luck egalitarian response to the recent criticisms of luck egalitarianism by social relations egalitarians. This systematic, theoretical introduction illustrates the broader picture of distributive justice and enables the reader to understand the core intuitions underlying, or conflicting with, luck egalitarianism.

This brilliant and challenging book ... Illuminates different conceptions of luck, as found in the philosophical literature, clarifies the difference between telic and deontic equality, and explains the 'levelling down' problem and the way that this affects luck egalitarians, and egalitarians more generally. * Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews * Lippert-Rasmussen's book offers both a reliable and critically sophisticated guide to the debate on luck egalitarianism from one of its shrewdest and most subtle contributors, and also advances several new interesting ideas and proposals ... This book is a model of its kind.

An excellent introduction. * Ethical Perspectives * Lippert-Rasmussen's book makes a tremendous contribution to our understanding of luck egalitarianism and will no doubt become a central reference point for both its proponents and its critics. * Ethics *
