Description

This critical examination of racial equality takes a new approach to breaking down racial barriers by proposing a system of equal opportunity through shared labor and contributive justice.


  • Focuses on how race and class inevitably structure vastly unequal life prospects
  • Shows how human society can be organized in a way that does not socialize children for lives of routine labour
  • Looks towards contribution, not distribution, as a way to promote racial equality
  • Argues that by sharing routine and complex labor, social relationships would be transformed, eliminating competition for limited opportunities to develop and contribute abilities

Paul Gomberg is Professor of Philosophy at Chicago State University. He has published widely in political philosophy, the history of philosophy, and on race in journals such as Ethics, American Philosophical Quarterly, and The Journal of Social Philosophy. His writing reflects his experience as an anti-racist activist and teacher.

Texte du rabat
Distributive injustices such as low pay, inferior health care and housing, as well as diminished opportunities in school, continue to blight the lives of millions of the urban poor in America and beyond.

This book announces a new theory of justice. Paul Gomberg:


  • Focuses on how race and class structure unequal life prospects
  • Shows how human society can be organized in a way that does not socialize children for lives of routine labor
  • Maintains that true equality of opportunity comes only when all labor, both routine and complex, is shared
  • Proposes a new paradigm for the theory of justice. While Rawls, Sen, Nozick, and Walzer conceive justice as addressing how various goods are fairly obtained or distributed, Gomberg argues that justice in distribution must advance contributive opportunities and duties

On Gomberg's contributive theory of justice, each person contributes to society not for individual material gain, but from a sense of what is required in order to build just relations with others.

Passionate and radical, but rigorously argued, this book makes a vital and original contribution to philosophy and social thought.
