(p.168) 5 From Pluralism to Community
Progressives, Pluralists, and the Problems of the State

Marc Stears

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines how the socialist pluralists responded to post-war criticisms by taking into account the philosophical basis of their concept of community including the political consequences that made an apparent impact. It also discusses the ideological creativity of the socialist pluralists that leads to the argument of Britain's political, social, and economic system reforms. Although there are still philosophical differences, both movements returned to examine the possibility of state-led reforms and that dialogue facilitated further the identification of elements in public policy central to their immediate reformist endeavours. The potential of education is highly expected by both socialist pluralists and nationalist progressives to successfully kick-start reform processes as it was hoped that immediate improvements might signify a far wider reformist movement.

Keywords:   social pluralism, Britain, community, economic reforms, nationalist progressivism
