    Hey,

    I'm writing an essay entitled 'According to what principle should resources be distributed?' for Political Theory. I've done some background reading on Luck Egalitarianism and understanding the the basic concept. - In the lecture slides provided by my lecturer, he makes reference to Cohen and Luck Egalitarianism (LE) and states that it is a more 'socialist' attitude to LE. Can anyone explain to me how Cohen build on this? - I've tried looking for his books in my library but they're all currently checked out. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
