Abstract

Schoelandt proposes a solid justification to defend the value of public reason when two prominent strategies—the strategy of idealization of reasoning and requiring liberal values fail to respond to the illiberal dissenter objection. Schoelandt reflects on the place of public reason. Schoelandt argues that the place of public reason is to be a basic feature of a form of the moral community instead of giving permission to liberal laws. He has a valid point of view. I will first examine Schoelandt’s position on the place of public reason. I will then attempt to contextualize Schoelandt’s arguments about public reason and the issues he discusses. Lastly, from the standpoint of devotedness to all individuals, I will illustrate the three viewpoints of the author separately.
