Review of Frank Lovett, A General Theory of Domination and Justice (Oxford UP, 2010) [Book Review]

Philosophical Quarterly 62 (246):190-192 (2012)
The review argues that Lovett’s theory of domination suffers from a problem. Lovett is aware of the problem and bites a fairly large bullet in response to it. What he does not seem aware of is that the problem can be avoided by opting for an account of welfare that he unfortunately ignores, despite the fact that it would serve his purposes well.
