This treatise 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, it then advances an account of public justification that is more normative and less "populist" than the views of political liberals. Following the social contract theories of Hobbes, Locke and Kant, the author argues that citizens have inconclusive public justification. The rules of law, liberal democracy and limited judicial review are defended as elements of a publicly justified procedure.
