"When should claims of conscience override state-imposed norms of nondiscrimination and equal access to goods and services? Robert Vischer brings a fresh and subtle perspective to these questions, arguing for a "moral marketplace" in which, whenever possible, different groups and businesses follow competing moral norms. Vischer offers a probing and sophisticated analysis of a timely problem."

"Safeguarding the conditions of human flourishing and freedom is rarely a simple matter of fending off government intrusion or asserting one's abstract rights. As readers of this volume will better appreciate, it turns out to involve a project of tending more deliberately to the overall social ecology, with attention to the complex ways people communicate and interact in shared spaces. Vischer's erudite and skillful analysis highlights the thick interpersonal commitments situated within the myriad associations that mediate between individuals and the state. Only within this context will a healthy respect for conscience be guaranteed today." - Thomas J. Massaro, America Magazine
