Making Sense of Affirmative Action

Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen

  • Analyzes the strength of the main contemporary arguments both for and against affirmative action
  • Discusses how empirical circumstances may justify different philosophical conclusions, rather than focusing on the defense of one argument in a specific case or type of affirmative action
  • Widens the scope of eligible groups targeted by affirmative action as well as the scope of industries, spheres, or domains in which affirmative action may be implemented
