The topic of neutrality on the good is linked rather closely to the ideal of political liberalism as formulated by John Rawls. The basic intuition supporting the ideal of political neutrality is that no exercise of political power can be legitimately justified solely by the reason that one way of life is intrinsically superior to others. For a number of contemporary authors, the ideal of neutrality is the hallmark of liberalism. The contributors to this volume are internationally renowned authors and in several cases among the most prominent names to be found in contemporary political theory. The book should become a reference volume on liberal neutrality.
