What is its guiding spirit? Larmore identifies two such problem:. One can call this ideal neutrality, if one bears in mind two facts: 1 that the neutrality in question is neutrality with respect to controversial views of the good life , not to morality as such; 2 that such neutrality ought to be justified without appeal to controversial to conceptions of the good. Neutrality is not skepticism—the primary motivation is not epistemological but moral. This raises the question: how should neutrality be justified?

This strategy Larmore terms individualism and he attributes it to Kant and Mill. According to individualism, we ought to always maintain only a contingent allegiance to any substantial view of the good life because what really matters is autonomy Kant or individuality Mill. These romantic views are reasonable. We ought, therefore, to look for a different type of justification, one which the romantic, too, could accept. The justification must fall between two extremes: claiming a comprehensive and controversial doctrine, on the one hand, and being a merely strategic consensus, on the other.

The latter faces the problems of: a inherent instability, and b deriving moral principles from prudence. The norm of rational dialogue states that people should respond to disagreement by retreating to beliefs they share in order to a resolve the disagreement and vindicate one view, or b bypass it and appeal only to the common ground.

The second part of the norm obtains when a cannot be pulled off. From the norm of rational dialogue, it only follows that we should follow a certain procedure if we want to establish political principles, not that we ought to continue to talk once we reach disagreement. This last step requires an appeal to the norm of equal respect for persons. That norm — the idea that each is an end to be respected—rules out coercive means of resolving the argument.

It insists that any coercive principles must be as acceptable to you as to me. Both norms, Larmore thinks, are neutral with respect to individualism and romanticism. They do suggest a certain kind of individualism — that individuals must respect the rights of others, and that those rights must be independent of controversial ideals of the good —but not the individualism of the contentious sort.

If our aim is to devise principle of political association and if we are resolved to respect each other as persons in this effort, then the principles to be established must be ones which are justifiable to everyone whom they are to bind.

If, in this attempt at justification, we meet with reasonable disagreement, then we should fall back on common ground and determine what principles can be derived on that basis. Acceptable political principles must thus conform to the cardinal principle of neutrality toward controversial views about the good life This argument makes two assumptions: 1 that everyone accepts the two norms in question, and 2 that people are interested in devising political principles.

First, he denies a reading of Rawls view in which political liberalism does not express a correct or true moral conception. He withholds a specific notion of true, not truth as such. If one adopts a weaker, non-metaphysical conception of truth, Rawls should be happy to say the norms in question are true.

What Is Political Philosophy?

Shaun P. One such individual was Charles Larmore. Of those theorists who have joined Rawls in his effort to develop and promote the concept of political liberalism, none has been more dedicated to the endeavour than Larmore. Beginning most notably with his Patterns of Moral Complexity and continuing through to his article entitled "The Moral Basis of Political Liberalism," Larmore has sought to articulate a feasible conception of political liberalism and in the course of so doing explain the benefits and necessity of its adoption. While both Larmore and Rawls readily acknowledge the similarities between their conceptions, Larmore also, understandably, believes that there are important differences between the two. In turn, Larmore argues that these differences enable him to better demonstrate the appropriateness and necessity of political liberalism, and thereby more effectively than Rawls justify the claim that the concept of political liberalism offers the "best" foundation for a conception of justice for modern liberal democracies. Completing this exercise will not only reveal the extent to which the two conceptions mimic each other, but also show that when examined closely the differences cited by Larmore are in fact cosmetic in character and insignificant in their effect.

Political Neutrality pp Cite as. Is neutrality on the good in some sense an ideal that a just society must embrace? A flagrantly non-neutral policy such as a state establishment of religion would surely merit condemnation. Such a policy would be non-neutral on the good, but would also run afoul of other principles of right that might have independent appeal for many of us, whatever our views on state neutrality. On the other hand, we might imagine a society in which human friendship is deteriorating according to a variety of social science measures.
