Abstract

In this paper I examine the various grounds advanced in the literature, including those I have advanced, for explaining what makes discrimination wrongful when it is wrongful. I find none of them persuasive. I conclude, not only were past explanations of wrongful discrimination mistaken, but also that, to date, no convincing explanation exists. If and when discrimination is wrongful, we still don’t know why it is.
