Which Equality? (K. Baynes)

Conférence | Talk


(Syracuse University)


Which Equality?

A recent and important debate among egalitarians has been about which concept of equality is most basic to egalitarian concerns and commitments:  a notion of equality of opportunity for welfare or resources, on the one hand, or a notion of social or relational equality, on the other.  This debate is sometimes framed as a choice between “redistribution” and “recognition” and, in other literature, as a choice between “luck egalitarianism” and social or relational egalitarianism.  This talk will consider some of the strongest objections to the claim that social equality is the more basic commitment as well as some responses that might be made to them.

PhilosoFest !


Le festival PhilosoFest d’Ottawa/Gatineau 2019 a pour objectif de réunir la communauté philosophique de l’Outaouais, et ce, afin d’explorer comment les particularités d’une situation concrète peuvent à la fois illuminer les questions qui en ressortent et enrichir la gamme des concepts et des méthodes philosophiques disponibles. Ce festival interuniversitaire de philosophie est événement qui vise à la fois un public académique et non-académique. Plusieurs différentes activités sont donc prévues: des conférenciers invités, des conférences étudiantes, la projection d’un film, des tables rondes, etc. Nous vous invitons à consulter notre programme détaillé et à saisir cette opportunité de prendre part à la communauté philosophique de votre région. 

Les organisateurs du PhilosoFest tiennent à souligner que cet événement se déroule sur un territoire Algonquin non cédé.

***

This year’s Ottawa/Gatineau PhilosoFest is meant to bring together philosophers from the Ottawa region to explore how sustained philosophical engagement with a focused pragmatic context can illuminate questions arising within said context, and interrogate and enrich existing philosophical concepts and methods. This interuniversity philosophy festival is an event that encourages both an academic and non-academic audience. There will be several different formats of activities to attend, including: keynote speakers, student conferences, a film screening, a round table, etc. We invite you to consult our detailed program and to seize this opportunity to take part in the philosophical community of your region.

The organizers of PhilosoFest wish to acknowledge that this event is taking place upon the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Algonquin nation.
