Summary

Summary

A collection of critical essays by English and American scholars, including such controversial academic political theorists as Gutmann, Barry and Nussbaum, that raises questions about the current theoretical reassessment of political liberalism.


Summary

No challenge is more difficult for liberal theorists than justifying the value attached to toleration, since, in the face of mutually irreconcilable conceptions of the good, liberals instinctively caution against treating any of them as privileged, especially in the making of public policy.
This book is an important collection of new critical essays by English and American scholars, including some of the brightest and most controversial academic political theorists, such as Gutmann, Barry and Nussbaum. The volume raises provocative and important questions in the current theoretical reassessment of political liberalism .
