The importance of this paper is that it undermines an argument that there is an irreconcilable tension between reasonable principles governing individual moral conduct and liberal egalitarianism. In doing so it challenges Nagel’s account of the impartial point of view and thus has a wider bearing on the aim of developing an impartialist model of ethical and moral principles. It is the only paper in the literature that assesses Nagel’s novel arguments on these subjects. A positive model of liberal egalitarianism is developed on the basis of an account of citizenship and social ethos. The paper contributes to foundational issues in moral and political theory.
