Does Value Pluralism Entail Liberalism?


Robert B. Talisse


Vanderbilt University

August 2007


Abstract:     
Isaiah Berlin repeatedly attempted to derive liberalism from value pluralism. It is generally agreed that Berlin's arguments fail; however, neo-Berlinians have taken up the project of securing the entailment. This paper begins with an account of why the Berlinian project seems attractive to contemporary theorists. I then examine Berlin's argument. With this background in place, I criticize William Galston's recent attempts to rescue the Berlinian project.
