Princeton Ira W. DeCamp Bioethics Seminars | “Luck-Egalitarian Priority for the Imprudent”

Event Details

Ira W. DeCamp Bioethics Seminar with Nir Eyal, Director of the Rutgers Center for Population-Level Bioethics

Abstract: We all make unhealthful choices, and luck egalitarianism is commonly understood as an approach to ethics that is willing or inclined to hold patients responsible for their unhealthful choices. I shall argue that luck egalitarianism is committed to the opposite policy. Not only do consistent luck egalitarian policy makers not hold unhealthful choices against patients. They tend to prioritize patients whose unhealthful choices are what made them disadvantaged.
