Inhaltsangabe: Contemporary political theory has experienced a recent revival of an old idea: that of community. In Liberalism and Community, Steven Kautz explores the consequences of this renewed interest for liberal politics. Whereas communitarian critics argue that liberalism is both morally and politically deficient because it does not adequately account for equality and virtue, Kautz defends liberalism by presenting reports of various partisan quarrels among liberals (who love liberty), democrats (who love equality), and republicans (who love virtue).
"This thoughtfully written book addresses what is perhaps the central political issue of our time: whether liberal societies can hold together as self-sustaining communities, or whether liberal ideology sows the seeds of its own destruction in promoting an asocial individualism."--Foreign Affairs
"In this new book examining the current debates surrounding liberalism in the United States, author Steven Kautz highlights a classic dilemma of the American experience: how can Americans who love, and indeed demand, privacy reconcile this attitude with the need to be part of a community? The new communitarians of political theory--and their views are excellently documented here--have sought to bury both the classical liberalism of Locke and Montesquieu, and the so-called Kantian liberalism of Dworkin, in favour of theories that bring together the libertarian and communal needs of the citizenry."--Ian S. Scott, University of Mancester
