A New Theory of Equal Opportunity

Joseph Fishkin

  • A bold, original theory of equal opportunity
  • Applies the theory to important contemporary problems in public policy and law including class inequality, workplace flexibility, and antidiscrimination law
  • Engages with, and raises fundamental questions about, responsibility-catering theories of distributive justice
  • An argument informed by research about the role of developmental opportunities from the social and natural sciences
  • Offers a view of how opportunities matter, in part, because they shape our preferences, ambitions, and values
