Spheres of Justice
Spheres of Justice: A Defense of Pluralism and Equality is a 1983 book by Michael Walzer.
Walzer argues in favour of an idea he calls "complex equality", and against the view that goods with different meaning and content can be lumped together into the larger category of primary goods, as is advocated by John Rawls, in his A Theory of Justice (1971).
Spheres of Justice has, together with Just and Unjust Wars (1977) and Interpretation and Social Criticism (1987), been identified as one of Walzer's most important works by philosopher Will Kymlicka.
