Summary

How should the State respond to the different and sometimes conflicting identity-based justice claims made by its citizens? To what extent should majority societies accede to the claims of immigrant groups whose conflicting values are so different to their own?Drawing on the work of economist and political theorist Friederich Hayek, the author builds a major critique of the role of public institutions and of contemporary responses to cultural diversity and the underlying principles for justice. Critically examining multiculturalism, nationalism and liberal egalitarianism approaches, the author indicates they fail to recognise the task of cultural justice. Tebble claims one of the principal tasks of justice is to go beyond the provision of institutions that assume a particular conception of good based on cultural homogeneity. The book emphasises the commitment to individual freedom and equality, and the need for strictly neutral institutions that permit the discovery of justice relevant to the status of those differing and sometimes conflicting values. Epistemological Liberalism seeks to defend an 'epistemological' account of liberalism as the most appropriate response to the challenges facing justice in a culturally diverse and socially complex modern society.An invaluable contribution to contemporary debates about justice, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of culture and identity, contemporary political theory/philosophy and liberal political theory.
