Abstract

This comment discusses Axel Gosseries contribution to Diacritica. I shall first raise some doubts about the cogency of Gosseries’ interpretation of Rawls' theory of intergenerational justice, and then argue that that interpretation is implausible in its own right.

Keywords: intergenerational justice, distributive justice, John Rawls
