Ahoj všem,

nabídl by podle kontextu někdo překlad tučné věty, zejména tučného podtržení?

Recall Rawls’s claim that a man’s “character depends in large part upon
fortunate family and social circumstances for which he can claim no
credit.” Rawls repeatedly stressed, and thus evidently thought it relevant,
that, “Even the willingness to make an effort, to try, and so to be deserving
in the ordinary sense is itself dependent upon happy family and social
circumstances.” In any case, many authors endorse such a view, and many
are inspired to do so by Rawls.9

9 For example, Brock 1999. See her section on “How can we deserve anything since we
don’t deserve our asset bases?” Those who reject the premise (that, to be a desert maker,
an input must itself be deserved in turn)
include Narveson 1995, 67; Sher 1987, 24, and
Zaitchik 1977, 373.
