Maureen Junker-Kenny (2016) RELIGION AND PUBLIC REASON:A Comparison of the Positions of John Rawls, Jürgen Habermas and Paul Ricoeur
This book compares three approaches to public reason and to the public space
accorded to religions: the liberal platform of an overlapping consensus proposed
by John Rawls, Jürgen Habermas’s discourse ethical reformulation of Kant’s
universalism and its realization in the public sphere, and the co-founding role
which Paul Ricoeur attributes to the particular traditions that have shaped their
cultures and the convictions of citizens.
