Abstract

Like many, probably most, political philosophers, I support laws that would ­substantially reduce economic inequalities that capitalism otherwise creates and would not dream of describing myself as a libertarian. Yet I will argue that libertarians have had important lessons to teach the likes of us. These lessons are deep. They ought to transform our typical premises and projects, even though they need not transform us into libertarians.
