Two Challenges to Egalitarianism:Prioritarianism and Sufficientarianism

XIE Baogui;Department of Marxism-Leninism,Guizhou Normal College;  
Egalitarianism has become an important conception of distributive justice in contemporary political philosophy,but other two competing doctrines—prioritarianism and sufficientarianism—try to challenge egalitarianism.Despite their different emphases in arguments,the two doctrines have something in common:they both deny that equality is good in itself.The essential distinction of egalitarianism from them,however,is that it admits the intrinsic value of equality.The challenges of prioritarianism and sufficientarianism to egalitarianism are showed to be unreliable by some analyses and criticisms of them.The intrinsic value of equality can be argued for on the basis of comparative fairness.Furthermore,from this argument can be derived a"proportional equality view",which may be regarded as the new goal egalitarianism should pursue.
