Editorial Reviews


"With clarity and force, Talisse's immensely readable book briskly acquaints readers with the complex theories necessary to grappling with issues worth caring about. While meticulously attentive to pertinent scholarship, Talisse is never pedantic or jargonistic. He educates the reader by reiterating exactly the premises necessary to move his theses ahead. By the end, the reader feels a real stake in the questions and answers posed; I cannot recommend PPD highly enough."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"Talisse’s book is a smart contribution to several different discussions in political theory, and is well worth a serious read."-- Political Theory

"I love the way Talisse writes philosophy. He is one of my heroes, and his book will prove to be a major player in subsequent discussions." --Richard M. Gale, University of Pittsburgh, Professor Emeritus

More About the Author

Robert B. Talisse is W. Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy, Professor of Political Science, 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)* (Routledge, 2014). His *Engaging Political Philosophy* will be published by Routledge in October of 2015. Talisse is co-host of the podcast *New Books in Philosophy*, and a monthly columnist for the blog *3 Quarks Daily*.
