Liberalism, Modernity, and Communal Being [Book Review]
Imprints: Egalitarian Theory and Practice 10 (3):257-264 (2010)
|Abstract||A critical discussion of Toula Nicolacopoulos' 'The Radical Critique of Liberalism'. I analyse her methodology of 'critical reconstructionism' and argue that considerations about the epistemic status of the inquiring practices leading to the formulation of liberal political theory need not affect the viability and desirability of liberal political practice, especially if we adopt a historically-informed realist account of the foundations of liberalism.|
