Rationalism, Pluralism, and Freedom


This conference examined Jacob Levy's book Rationalism, Pluralism, and Freedom, in particular his view that there are two irreconcilable liberal theories—rationalist liberalism and pluralist liberalism—which differ on how to view and treat groups in relation to a free society, and whether groups are a threat to individual liberty or a necessary component of a full liberal theory of freedom.
