Must We Provide Material Redress for Past Wrongs?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This short essay aims to demonstrate several reasons why the plausible answer to this chapter's title is rarely. Due to the nature of such a plural argument, “rarely” is an adequate conclusion. There is no single overwhelming reason to argue that material redress for past wrongs is unjustifiable, but there are numerous counter arguments to such claims, which, in the aggregate, make it nearly implausible that there are convincing claims for redress following past wrongs.
