Apology and Reparation in a Multicultural State

Apology and Reparation in a Multicultural State

(p.272) 15 Apology and Reparation in a Multicultural State
Law and Philosophy

Christopher Bennett

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines a problem for a particular version of the communicative theory of punishment — one that gives central place to the notions of apology and reparation. It argues that a condition on the viability of such a theory for a pluralistic or multicultural state is that citizens of such a state are able to reason together about questions of appropriate emotion: that such questions, in other words, can be resolved by the public reason of that state.

Keywords:   communicative theory, punishment, pluralistic state
