Description - Pluralism and Liberal Neutrality by Richard Bellamy

This book explores the crisis of liberalism, as located in the liberal claim to endorse a set of neutral procedures that allow individuals and groups to pursue their own good, when the very possibility of such neutrality is brought into question by the growth of plural societies, and the divided loyalties that go with them. Modern states rely on agreements to secure the loyalty of citizens. But growing social pluralism means a growing division in loyalties among citizens along lines of ideology, ethnicity, gender, religion and locale. The liberal answer to diversity is to devise a set of fair procedures - which are neutral procedures - which do not dictate the ultimate good chosen by members. The question which this book directly confronts is whether such neutrality is genuinely possible and thus whether a liberal society is itself genuinely possible.
