Abstract

Temkin's book argues that equality is a complex and individualistic value. The critical notice suggests that equality is not as complex as Temkin takes it to be. It contends that Temkin's view does not rest the importance of equality on the moral claims of individuals. A view of equality that is based on individual claims might provide a better explanation of why equality matters even when a gain in quality does not benefit anyone
