Three Ways of Making the Turn

(p.165) 7 Locke and Loyalty in Contemporary Political Theology
The Pretenses of Loyalty

John Perry

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines three current proposals for making the turn to loyalty, that is, three strategies for reestablishing a vision of toleration that has become detached from its theological underpinnings. Reconciling loyalty through cultural republicanism is advocated by Catholic neoconservatives Richard John Neuhaus and Michael Novak. Nicholas Wolterstorff and John Witte (informed by neo-Calvinist or Reformed theology) pursue loyalty through ordered pluralism. Finally, Martha Nussbaum, a Reform Jew, advocates loyalty through fidelity to conscience.

Keywords:   republicanism, Locke, Wolterstorff, Witte, Nussbaum, Roger Williams, Neuhaus, Kuyper, Maritain, Scalia
