Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy:1-22 (forthcoming)
|Abstract||One of the most distinctive features of Ronald Dworkin?s egalitarian theory is its commitment to holding individuals responsible for the costs to others of their ambitions. This commitment has received much criticism. Drawing on Dworkin?s latest statement of his position in Justice for Hedgehogs (2011), we suggest that it seems to be in tension with another crucial element of Dworkin?s own theory, namely, its endorsement of the importance of people leading authentic lives ? lives that reflect their own values. We examine this tension between responsibility and authenticity, and some strategies Dworkin does and could deploy to defuse it, which we think are unsuccessful. We then propose a solution for reconciling the demands of responsibility and authenticity, which is, so we claim, friendly to Dworkin?s fundamental commitments but which leads to a revisionist interpretation of the demands of equality of resources|
