Abstract

John White argues that 'egalitarianism, in education as elsewhere, is a will-o'-the-wisp'.(1) He claims that recent defences of egalitarianism, among which he kindly includes my own along with those of Thomas Nagel and Kai Nielsen, have failed to answer the basic question of why a more equal society should be regarded as valuable. I shall try to show that the positive philosophical commitments contained in his argument may point the way to an answer.
