Can liberal integrity handle disagreement? Perhaps not

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Can liberal integrity handle disagreement? I suggest that it cannot. Shmuel Nili’ s The People’s Duty outlines a pedagogical approach to collective, liberal integrity–Nili claims that individuals act with integrity when they accept and act on the right projects and commitments, projects and commitments that they may not recognize as their own. The People’s Duty argues that this conception of integrity simplifies and clarifies the duties of a liberal national collective. When members of a national collective disagree, however, I argue we have reason to suspect that a pedagogical conception of integrity will not simplify and clarify our duties.
