Description

Liberal democracies face the difficult question of whether political decisions should be based on public reasons alone, or may be based on controversial ideas such as religious grounds. After examining a spectrum of positions and claiming that liberal democratic premises do not resolve this problem, this monograph argues that much depends on historical and cultural context. It concludes that more flexible principles are now best for the USA.
