    DescriptionJustificatory Liberalism advances a theory of personal, public and political justification. Drawing on current work in epistemology and cognitive psychology, the book develops a theory of personally justified belief. Building on this account, it then advances an account of public justification that is more normative and less 'populist' than that of 'political liberals'.

    Review quote
    an insightful and valuable contribution to political philosophy. Colin Farrelly, Mind, Vol. 109, No.435, July 00. There is much in this final section that will interest political and legal theorists and Gaus covers a lot of ground. Colin Farrelly, Mind, Vol. 109, No.435, Jul 00. Gaus's book is an important contribution to the idea of public justification. Colin Farrelly, Mind, Vol. 109, No.435, July 00. The book brings together a broad range of issues from epistemology, cognitive science, political theory and law. It is essential reading for those who take seriously the idea of public justification. Colin Farrelly, Mind, Vol. 109, No.435, Jul. 00. Impressive, sophisticated and original ... In place of populism, Gaus offers an extremely rich and complex survey of general models of epistemic justification and an argument for the relevance of such a survey for questions of moral justification ... This is a major, admirable in its scope and ambition. It contains something for almost everyone interested in contemporary political philosophy, particularly those interested in arguments over the nature of public reason and deliberative democracy, and employs an impressive range of intellectual tools with analytical scrupulosity. Matthew Festenstein, Contemporary Politics, vol 4 no2 1998
