Constructing Community:
Moral Pluralism and Tragic Conflicts
J. Donald Moon

Book Description | Table of Contents

ENDORSEMENTS:

"A pleasure to read. Moon develops a liberal approach to political theory that takes account of the plurality of the views that people hold-not only about their lives, but views about what a good society would be."--Jeremy Waldron, School of Law, University of California, Berkeley

"Moon produces a skillful and spirited defense of rights.... Political liberalism emerges from this book corrected and enhanced."--George Kateb, Princeton University

"This work is a pleasure to read. Moon develops a liberal approach to political theory that takes account of the plurality of the views that people hold--not only about their lives, but views about what a good society would be. And he shows that, despite moral pluralism, a liberal strategy can be constructed for the organization of a society around the value accorded to human agency. . . . Moon deals explicitly and at length with feminist claims and their place in wider liberal theory, and he is one of the first political philosophers in this tradition to do that."--Jeremy Waldron, School of Law, University of California, Berkeley

"Constructing Community is a noteworthy achievement. It deals with an impressively wide range of hard questions, and it is exceptionally fair-minded . . . . Moon produces a skillful and spirited defense of rights at a time when, on all sides, theorists are finding ways of disparaging rights for the sake of promoting a partial cause.... Political liberalism emerges from this book corrected and enhanced."--George Kateb, Princeton University
