The Practice of Liberal Pluralism
The Practice of Liberal Pluralism defends a theory, liberal pluralism, which is based on three core concepts--value pluralism, political pluralism, and expressive liberty--and explores the implications of this theory for politics. Liberal pluralism helps clarify some of the complexities of real-world political action and points toward a distinctive conception of public philosophy and public policy.
