Value and Context

Alan Thomas (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the unresolved problem for Rawls described at the end of the previous chapter. The problem is that given the demanding nature of the duty of mutual restraint invoked when citizens deliberate about constitutional and legislative fundamentals, some account is necessary of how people are actually motivated to act in accordance with such a demanding ideal of citizenship. It is argued that the problem can be solved by extending political liberalism to cover a specific set of claims drawn from the republican tradition.

Keywords:   political liberalism, liberal republicanism, John Rawls, citizenship
