(p.207) 7 Segmented Foundations and Pluralism
The Nature of Political Theory

Andrew Vincent (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Examines the processes of internal fragmentation implicit within the logic of the conventionalist arguments, using the generic conceptual theme of ‘pluralism’ to analyse liberal pluralism, multicultural pluralism, and difference‐based pluralism. The basic argument made in this chapter is that conventionalism does not cease to work at the level of the nation or community. Every traditional community or nation is constituted by multiple sub‐communities and sub‐cultures.

Keywords:   difference theory, feminism, identity, liberalism, multiculturalism, pluralism, postmodernism
