The Curious Case of Absent Injustice

Last year I presented an Ethics@noonish seminar entitled “A preponderance of injustice”, in which I argued that there is vastly more injustice than justice. In the discussion following that seminar, one interesting objection was that I had failed to account for a vast amount of justice – namely all those cases in which people refrain from doing what they should not do, and in which they do what they should do. In the forthcoming seminar I shall respond methodically to this objection, arguing that it does not upend my earlier conclusion.
