Chapter 10 takes leave of the project by reconsidering some especially troublesome thoughts about it—especially the way in which ordinary approximations to basic good health are apparently compatible with basic injustice of horrific sorts. This underlines the need for a full-fledged normative theory of justice, but does not undermine the argument for beginning with the habilitation framework.

Keywords: health approximations; basic good health; normative theory of justice; habilitation framework
