Abstract: In this paper I critically assess some arguments made by Elvio Baccarini in his book In a Better World?. I suggest some ways in which his arguments can be clarified; more notable in relation to his general framework of public justification. I also suggests that Baccarini is too lenient with parents in two respects: he gives too much leeway to their right to shape their children’s ambitions and plans, and he also allows them too much room for improving their chances to get social and economic advantages. Finally, I make smaller remarks in relation to Baccarini’s conception of disabilities and the duties to enhance the severely disabled.
