Product description


Levy should be applauded for advancing a vital discussion within liberal theory, and doing so in a way that is informed by philosophical, historical and social-scientific perspectives. Political theorists should definitely read it, but so too should lawyers, policymakers, journalists and others interested in reconciling these dilemmas from a more practical perspective. ― Gareth Morley, Inroads Journal

This is a first-class work of political, social, and intellectual history-a tour de force indeed. ― Sheldon Richman, Arts and Letters

Levy has rehabilitated a neglected tradition in liberal political thought, demonstrated its salience for politics today and shown the defensibility of some of its key theoretical claims. ― Benjamin Hertberg, Contemporary Political Theory

Levy has written a valuable book. ― Andrew Norton, Policy Magazine

He begins his excellent Rationalism, Pluralism, and Freedom with a deconstruction of purely theoretical accounts of how liberals should view the existence of distinct associations and communities within society. ― Mark Koyama, Public Choice

The breathtakingly expansive scope of the work aims to teach us that the tension between rationalism and pluralism is ineliminable, and that adopting one perspective may blind us to domination. On the theoretical front, it is wildly successful. It presents a rereading of the liberal tradition that is at points truly revelatory. ― Melissa Schwartzberg, The New Rambler

This really is a crucial argument and serves as a stern reminder that there is no such thing as the superior virtue of the oppressed. ― P.S. Nash, Oxford Journal of Law and Religion

From the Publisher

Jacob T. Levy is Tomlinson Professor of Political Theory and coordinator of the Research Group on Constitutional Studies at McGill University, and a member of the Montreal Groupe de Recherche Interuniversitaire en Philosophie Politique.
