Liberals on Liberalism
The 11 essays in this volume represent an attempt to review the meaning, foundations, and goals of modern liberalism. Part I provides an assessment of liberalism's current standing and statements on how its reconstruction might be undertaken. These include Thomas Spragens' analysis of reason within the liberal culture and James Fiskin on alternative strategies for justifying liberalism's core values. Part II covers specific characteristics of the philosophy of liberalism--the liberal idea of freedom and of justice, the liberal theory of community and self-identification, and the possibility of a liberal public morality. Part III, on the politics of liberalism, covers the relationship between liberalism and democracy, offers a defense of such liberal institutions as representative government, and concludes by positioning liberalism closer to the activity of everyday political participants.
