In Discrimination and disregard, Benjamin Eidelson develops illuminating philosophical solutions to those questions.

those it disfavours. He bargains an unique account of what such disrespect quantities to, explaining how cognizance to 2 diverse elements of ethical personhood — equality and autonomy — should advisor our judgments approximately wrongful discrimination. even as, in spite of the fact that, Eidelson contends that many kinds of
discrimination are morally impeachable purely as a result of their contingent results.
