In the course of the English-speaking global, and within the many different international locations the place analytic philosophy is studied, Hillel Steiner is esteemed as one of many greatest modern political philosophers. This quantity is designed as a festschrift for Steiner and as a major selection of philosophical essays in its personal correct. The editors have assembled a roster of hugely distinct foreign participants, all of whom are wanting to pay tribute to Steiner by way of targeting subject matters on which he himself has focused. many of the members interact without delay with Steiner's paintings, while others concentration ultimately on his writings yet as a substitute grapple with matters that experience figured prominently therein. each one essay seeks to strengthen the debates within which Steiner himself has so significantly participated. The examine concludes with a reaction by means of Steiner himself.

Claims that such distributions are good or justified are sometimes expressed as statements about equality: it is valuable that everyone should be equally free from hunger, or that everyone should be equally able to develop his or her potential. At other times some such views are condemned as inegalitarian. Thus, a distribution of educational resources and opportunities by abilities is sometimes condemned as elitist.
