Civil Disagreement: Personal Integrity in a Pluralistic Society by Edward Langerak

How can we agree to disagree in today's pluralistic society, one in which individuals and groups are becoming increasingly polarized by fierce convictions that are often at odds with the ideas of others? Civil Disagreement shows how we can cope with diversity and be appropriately open toward opponents even while staying true to our convictions. The author examines an array of illustrative cases, such as debates over slavery, gay marriage, compulsory education for the Amish, and others, proposing an approach called "perspective pluralism" that honors the integrity of various viewpoints while avoiding the implication that all reasonable views are equally acceptable or true. Civil Disagreement offers a concise yet comprehensive guide for students and scholars of ethics, philosophy, and political science, as well as other readers concerned about the polarization that often seems to paralyze national and international politics.
