What Is Enough? Sufficiency, Justice, and Health

AbstractCarina Fourie and Annette Rid ’s edited volumeWhat Is Enough? Sufficiency, Justice, and Health comprises fifteen original contributions which explore the possibility of a sufficientarian approach to healthcare priority setting and resource allocation. Sufficientarianism is a well-established theory of distributive justice, which tells us that justice requires that each person has “enough,” and assigns particular importance to a threshold level of goods under which no person must fall. Sufficiency is under-explored as a distributive principle in the healthcare context, and this book makes a strong case for its inclusion among more familiar principles of justice such as ut ility, priority to the worst off, and equality.
