Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this provocative book Talisse scrutinises the thesis of value pluralism and its alleged relationship with liberalism. [He] should be commended for writing a stimulating and provocative book that is crammed with a plethora of refreshingly pithy arguments." --Edward Hall, Political Studies Review

"[A] fascinating book, containing a wealth of argument. Talisse presents a strong challenge to value pluralists and pragmatists alike, and the book represents a much-needed corrective to common assumptions about the supposedly natural link between pluralism and liberalism. Pluralism and Liberal Politics ought to be read by anyone with an interest in contemporary debates about pluralism and political liberalism." --Jethro Butler, Plurilogue

"Talisse’s argument is ingenious...this is a remarkable work". - Andrew F. Smith, Journal of Moral Philosophy

More About the Author

Robert B. Talisse is Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Philosophy Department at Vanderbilt University. He writes mainly about political philosophy, with special interest in democratic theory, liberalism, justice, and pluralism. Talisse also pursues interests in American pragmatism, social epistemology, and argumentation theory. Many of these interests are brought together in his 2009 book, *Democracy and Moral Conflict* (Cambridge University Press), where he argues that there are shared epistemic principles underlying even our most vehement moral disputes, and that these principles are robust enough to sustain democratic commitments despite deep moral conflicts.

Talisse has recently co-authored a book with Scott Aikin about public political argumentation titled *Why We Argue (And How We Should)*, which will be available in the fall of 2013. His *Engaging Political Philosophy* will be published later in 2014. Talisse is co-host of the podcast, *New Books in Philosophy*, and a monthly columnist for the blog *3 Quarks Daily*.
