About this book

This book begins from the premise, which it seeks to elaborate, that the poorest human being shares with the richest, a natural nature. This, it is claimed, is not the trivial thesis it is sometimes represented as being. Rather, significant moral consequences flow from the assumption that all human beings share a set of natural needs. Using this starting point, the book also seeks to defend an objectivist epistemology.

Reviews

'Exciting, challenging, engaging, clear: this book provides a fresh approach to the urgent issue of justice in a divided world.' - Morwenna Griffiths, Professor of Educational Research, Nottingham Trent University, UK

'Alison Assiter has written a very accessible book...which offers a useful counterpoint to the literature on multiculturalism, as well as developing a thesis that resonates with the 'ethical turn' in a considerable amount of contemporary social thought.' - Keith Tester, School of Social, Historical & Literary Studies, University of Portsmouth, UK
