Maximin in philosophy

In philosophy, the term “maximin” is often used in the context of John Rawls‘s A Theory of Justice, where he refers to it (Rawls (1971, p. 152)) in the context of The Difference Principle. Rawls defined this principle as the rule which states that social and economic inequalities should be arranged so that “they are to be of the greatest benefit to the least-advantaged members of society”. In other words, an unequal distribution can be just when it maximizes the benefit to those who have the most minuscule allocation of welfare conferring resources (which he refers to as “primary goods”).[4][5]
