Abstract

Domenico Melidoro’s new book invites a reevaluation of liberalism’s response to diversity. Central to his project is the recognition that many forms of diversity are inevitable because diversity is simply a (social) fact that liberalism must address. The result is an approach to liberalism that aims to secure conditions for peace when diversity and disagreement are inevitable.
