Arvopluralismi liberalismin perustana

Value Pluralism as a Moral Foundation of Liberalism

In the article I will examine the interconnection between value pluralism and liberalism. I will outline the prescriptive dimension of value plura­lism, and contend that, as such, this dimension does not entail extensive normative conclusions regarding the basic structuring of societies. I will argue, however, that a normative connection can be made between positive liberty and value pluralism. Thus, value pluralism can function as a normative foundation for liberalism. I will conclude by claiming that value pluralism is not, in the end, a more controversial foundation for liberalism than Rawlsian political liberalism.
