A Deontological Theory of Solidarity

In this paper I argue that solidarity is justified not (teleologically) by  
the goods it brings about, but rather deontologically, in terms of the  
affirmation of another's agency. Solidarity is thus justified when the  
agent aligns her/himself with the demands of the least well-off. So  
understood, solidarity is a form of equitable treatment, where equity is  
understood in three specific ways: Kantian equity is treating people in  
accord with basic justice; Aristotelian equity is departing from general  
principles to respond to people's particular circumstances; and being an  
equitable person is standing down from the most that one can demand in  
order to share the fate of the other. Since treating others equitably is a  
perfect duty, such solidarity is a perfect duty. And since equitable  
treatment is an ultimate value, such solidarity is intrinsically, not  
merely instrumentally, valuable.
