Summary
"Derived from Thomas Nagel's 1990 Locke Lectures, Equality and Partiality proposes that ethics, and the ethical basis of political theory, have to be understood as arising from the division between two standpoints, the personal and the impersonal. While the impersonal standpoint in each of us produces a powerful demand for universal impartiality and equality, the personal standpoint gives rise to individualistic motives and requirements which impede the pursuit and realization of such ideals. Nagel argues that any legitimate political system must achieve an integration of these two standpoints, and develops this idea in relation to specific problems of international justice, social and economic inequality, toleration, and the support of culture.
