Professor Howard Schweber analyzes whether there are limits to what counts as an appropriate justification for coercive government actions.
From the Publisher:
"Democracy and Authenticity examines a basic problem for liberal democracies. In a polity that is characterized by real diversity of identities and values, what kinds of justifications are appropriate for coercive government actions? In particular, this book argues that justifications that are based on particular religious or other doctrines that are not accessible to nonadherents cannot be a proper basis for government actions that affect everyone. Instead, the book develops a model of public justification that is intended to guide citizens in a liberal democracy through the work of creating a politics that satisfies their responsiblities to one another"--
