Resumen

El igualitarismo de la suerte comprende un conjunto de concepciones liberal igualitarias de la justicia que consideran justas aquellas desigualdades originadas por las elecciones voluntarias de los individuos e injustas las que son fruto de la suerte. Este trabajo analiza los aspectos básicos de esta posición y las principales controversias que ha generado. La sección primera introduce el contexto y motivación que dan lugar a las concepciones igualitaristas de la suerte. La sección segunda plantea tres formas de reconstruir el debate entre los igualitaristas de la suerte y Rawls. La sección tercera examina el núcleo duro del igualitarismo de la suerte, a saber: (i) la idea de responsabilidad; (ii) la distinción entre suerte bruta y suerte opcional; (iii) la cuestión de la métrica. La sección cuarta analiza las dos principales objeciones que ha recibido este enfoque. Finalmente, la sección quinta concluye evaluando el lugar del igualitarismo de la suerte en el debate contemporáneo sobre la justicia distributiva.
