To mark his installation as the Philip Hallen Endowed Chair in Community Health and Social Justice, BCHS’s Steven Albert will revisit Rousseau’s 1754 Discourse on the Origin and Foundations of Inequality Among Men, or “Second Discourse.” We have moved beyond early philosophical speculation to an emerging science of inequality, where the emergence of hierarchy can be explored experimentally. Health disparities can be viewed through this same lens and offer lessons on remediating inequality.
