The introduction summarizes the aims of the book and gives preliminary definitions of its central terms: habilitation, basic justice, basic good health, and robustly healthy agency. It explains the sense in which the book is offered as a framework for normative work on basic distributive justice generally, rather than as a competing normative theory of justice. The introduction concludes with an overview of the organizational plan of the book, and then appends an account of the motivation for pursuing this project.

Keywords: habilitation; basic good heath; basic justice; healthy agency; distributive justice
