@ Political liberalism, @ overlapping consensus, and @ reasonability

     (For '~ Political liberalism in thinkers other than Rawls' see that)

     (For '~ Rawls and neutrality' see that)

     (This is really the application of the idea of public justifiability to the fact of moral pluralism) #

     ('Political liberalism' is a liberal theory of principles to govern the basic structure of society which is not grounded in any one philosophical or religious or comprehensive-moral view, and accordingly could gain the allegiance of people with all such views, including non-liberal ones, as long as they are 'reasonable'. Such allegiance would be an 'overlapping consensus'. Rawls – who defines political liberalism as a liberal political conception of justice – also builds in the idea that such a conception includes only certain values – political ones – and that it is grounded in the public political culture of a modern constitutional democracy) #
