Part of Religion and Democracy

Domenico Melidoro

Dealing with Diversity puts forth an exhaustive theoretical classification of liberalism, and, through a dialectical method, offers a critical account of the most adequate system that allows genuine commitment to diversity on the part of liberal institutions, analysing India’s religious pluralism in this light. The book seeks to provide a solution to the problem of ensuring a liberal, peaceful, and stable coexistence of different groups while giving space to community loyalties, religious belongings, and cultural traditions.

Part of Religion and Democracy

Domenico Melidoro

Description

In contemporary times, one of the common markers of a liberal society is the presence of a certain degree of diversity, indicated by coexistence of multiple ideas, beliefs, and cultural practices. But how does a complex and differentiated tradition of political thought like liberalism accommodate such diversity without jeopardizing social unity?

Formulating a response to this, Dealing with Diversity puts forth an exhaustive theoretical classification of liberalism into comprehensive pro-autonomy, comprehensive pro-toleration, political pro-autonomy, and political pro-toleration. Through a dialectical method, the author offers a critical account of the most adequate system that allows genuine commitment to diversity on the part of liberal institutions, and analyses India’s religious pluralism in this light. The book seeks to provide a solution to the problem of ensuring a liberal, peaceful, and stable coexistence of different groups while giving space to community loyalties, religious belongings, and cultural traditions.
