"...deft analysis of recent liberal theory makes this a necessary text for understanding the problems of liberalism and multiculturalism... Highly recommended..." --J. A. Gauthier, University of Portland, CHOICE
"Modus Vivendi Liberalism is ambitious, thoughtfully organized, and challenging, constructing a consistent and well-defended narrative characterized by a high level of rigor, and providing a model of probing philosophical argumentation.... Modus Vivendi Liberalism as a whole provides a valuable contribution to existing literature, is a starting point for future interdisciplinary research, and should stimulate a great deal of significant debate and discussion. Modus Vivendi Liberalism defends a number of innovative theories, constructing a stimulating narrative, and makes a series of significant and well-constructed arguments." --George Lazaroiu, Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences, New York, Contemporary Readings in Law and Social Justice
This book shows how the modus vivendi approach rejects both the broad philosophical ambitions and abiding search for deep moral consensus that characterize much of recent liberal thought. It will interest a wide range of readers in political philosophy and political theory.
