(p.187) 7 Neutrality or Tolerance?
Liberalism, Justice, and Markets

Colin M. Macleod

Oxford University Press

Takes up the relation between Dworkin's liberal egalitarianism and state perfectionism. A distinction is drawn between an ideal of liberal neutrality and liberal tolerance. The latter is compatible with a mild form of state perfectionism and is more attractive than the variety of liberal neutrality associated with equality of resource.

Keywords:   consequential neutrality, egalitarianism, endorsement constraint, equality of resource, justificatory neutrality, liberal neutrality, perfectionism, toleration
