Description

The basic outline for this mini-course will follow the book, Confident Pluralism: Surviving and Thriving Through Deep Difference. The professor will argue that Americans can and must live together peaceably in spite of deep and sometimes irresolvable difference. They can do so in two important ways. The first is by insisting upon constitutional commitments to protecting the voluntary groups of civil society through the rights of assembly and association, and by facilitating and enabling dissent, disagreement, and diversity in public forums. The second way of living together is by embodying its aspirations of tolerance, humility, and patience in civic practices.
