Public reason, reasonability and religion a: Critical look at a liberal tradition

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article addresses the idea of public reason, treating in particular its concomitant ideal of reasonableness. It exposes the continuity of this notion from John Locke to John Rawls, highlighting its connection to the minimalist doctrinal religiosity of the Erasmist tradition. It questions if this idea can serve as criteria to evaluate the presence of other religious voices in public life, given this connection.
