  • Introduction to the Symposium on Matthew Kramer’s Liberalism with
           Excellence
    • Authors: Billingham P; Taylor A.
      Pages: 1 - 7
      Abstract: Professor Matthew Kramer is one of the most wide-ranging contributors to contemporary moral, political, and legal philosophy. His work has covered, among other topics, theories of rights, the relationship between law and morality, the analysis of freedom, metaethics, the rule of law, and the ethics of torture and capital punishment. It should be no surprise, then, that in Liberalism with Excellence he has turned his attention to the on-going dispute between liberal neutralists and their perfectionist rivals.11 This debate is about one of the most central questions in political philosophy: when is the exercise of political power justifiable or legitimate' Much of the contemporary debate about this question focusses on the role that claims about the components of a good or flourishing life can play in justifying state action. The liberal neutralist view holds that the state must be neutral in some sense between a number of competing conceptions of the good life, and thus that claims about the good can play a limited justificatory role at best. Advocates of this view tend to maintain that state action should be justified by distinctively political values and ideals that are in some sense acceptable to all reasonable citizens, whatever their particular conceptions of the good. The perfectionist view, by contrast, holds that claims about the good have an important justificatory role to play. Governments can promote the good—and discourage the bad—in order to facilitate citizens living flourishing, edified, and worthwhile lives. The debate between these two positions is well-worn, and is probably familiar to most readers. Nonetheless, it continues to be both active and fruitful. But few recent contributions are as important or original as Kramer’s.

  • Reasonable Disagreement and the Neutralist Dilemma: Abortion and
           circumcision in Matthew Kramer’s Liberalism with Excellence
    • Authors: Chambers C.
      Pages: 9 - 32
      Abstract: This paper starts by investigating the idea of reasonable disagreement. It then considers Matthew Kramer’s argument that there is no neutral solution available to the disagreement over abortion. The paper argues that Kramer’s account has wider application, and identifies a neutralist dilemma. The neutralist dilemma applies when, of two policy options available to the state, one is unreasonable. It follows that the state should enact only the reasonable policy. However, in a neutralist dilemma the fact of reasonable disagreement due to the burdens of judgment means that it is not possible for the state to act at all, whether legislating or not, without deviating from neutrality. The paper develops the concept of the neutralist dilemma and then applies it to another case discussed by Kramer: infant circumcision. The paper argues that the debate over infant circumcision can be framed as a neutralist dilemma, but that the most plausible resolution of the dilemma results in an argument in favor of the legal prohibition of the practice. This is a surprising result, since most liberal states do not restrict circumcision and since prohibition of circumcision might initially appear to be non-neutral or even illiberal; however it is consistent with the tenets of neutralist liberalism.

  • Abortion, Marriage and Cognate Problems
    • Authors: Laborde C.
      Pages: 33 - 48
      Abstract: In Liberalism with Excellence, Matthew Kramer argues that liberal neutrality cannot adjudicate issues such as abortion, and he intimates that this problem extends to “cognate problems” such as euthanasia, animal rights and (more unexpectedly) same-sex marriage. In this Article, I examine the sense in which marriage is a cognate problem to abortion. I suggest that liberal neutrality is indeterminate, not only about the identification of rights-bearing natural persons, but also about the identification of justice-apt social practices. I argue that the resolution of many political-moral controversies depend on contested social ontologies—claims about the nature and moral status of the particular groups and relationships that individuals form—and I illustrate this claim by reference to the rights of religious association.

  • Confessions of a Quidnunc
    • Authors: Sher G.
      Pages: 49 - 61
      Abstract: This paper is a critical examination of Matthew Kramer’s novel version of political perfectionism. Kramer defends governmental efforts to promote excellence not as ways of inducing citizens to live better lives, but rather as steps toward building a society in which all citizens can take pride. The paper’s first section discusses Kramer’s freedom-based case against depriving citizens of bad options. The second section criticizes his argument that even attempts to improve people’s lives that do not deprive them of options manifest an unacceptably intrusive attitude on the part of the state and its agents. The third and fourth sections raise some doubts about Kramer’s positive proposal, which seeks to justify governmental attempts to promote excellence by arguing that they make the society more just.

      Abstract: This paper presents a dilemma for Matthew Kramer’s view, as defended in his Liberalism with Excellence. A central aim of that book is to critique existing liberal perfectionist theories, which he labels “edificatory,” and to defend a different such theory, which he calls “aspirational.” Edificatory perfectionism holds that governments ought to promote citizens’ well-being directly by inducing them to live lives that are more wholesome, cultivated, or autonomous. Aspirational perfectionism, meanwhile, holds that governments ought to promote the conditions under which every citizen can be warranted in harboring a strong sense of self-respect, by promoting the occurrence of outstanding achievements within society. We first argue that Kramer’s two central arguments against edificatory perfectionism, which appeal to the value of freedom and to moral integrity, fail to establish the impermissibility of edificatory policies. His critique could be salvaged by holding that the ambit of legitimate government activity is limited to the provision and distribution of primary goods. However, we argue, second, that Kramer’s own aspirational perfectionism also runs afoul of this restriction, because his conception of warranted self-respect is not a primary good. Kramer is thus faced with a choice between upholding his objections to edificatory perfectionism and maintaining the coherence of his aspirational perfectionism.

  • Should I Be Proud of Liberalism with Excellence' On the Collective
           Grounds of Self-Respect
    • Authors: Stemplowska Z.
      Pages: 81 - 91
      Abstract: In Liberalism with Excellence Kramer offers an account of liberalism that gets at something liberal philosophy often overlooks: the crucial importance for individuals of the success of their groups. According to Kramer, Rawlsian liberals acknowledge the importance to a just society of individuals enjoying warranted self-respect, but they overlook the fact that such warranted self-respect can be promoted by the state investing in the excellence of the society to which the individuals belong. In particular, warranted individual self-respect can be bolstered by one's society's achieving excellence, including through the exceptional artistic, sporting and other achievements of some of its individual members. Therefore, not only perfectionists who already think it is the state's role to promote valuable modes of living, but also Rawlsian liberals should expect the state to be in the business of investing in exceptional human achievements. In the article, I examine the core idea, on which the argument relies, that individual warranted self-respect can be promoted by the state through the promotion of the excellence of one’s society. I identify mechanisms through which individuals' warranted self-respect and society's excellence can stand in such a relationship. I argue that Kramer’s own account does not offer enough details for us to be able to judge whether it succeeds, and I suggest a possible direction in which the argument could be developed.

  • The Self-Respect of Democratic People
    • Authors: van Wietmarschen H.
      Pages: 93 - 107
      Abstract: According to Matthew Kramer’s aspirational perfectionism, the state is permitted to provide funding for the arts, sciences, and culture with the aim of securing the warranted self-respect of all citizens. This paper argues that although Kramer is right to think that the state has an important role to play in the economy of recognition, his conception of this role is mistaken. I argue, first, that Kramer’s exclusive focus on warrant for self-respect obscures the importance of social phenomena such as stigma, marginalization, and discrimination. Second, I argue that Kramer is mistaken in his reliance on vicarious pride to explain how the various excellences of our fellow citizens provide us with warrant for self-respect. I conclude with a brief sketch an alternative account, according to which the self-respect of citizens of democratic societies is supported by their collective creation and maintenance of just political institutions.

  • Subjectivist Perfectionism
    • Authors: Wall S.
      Pages: 109 - 131
      Abstract: This paper critically discusses a neglected view in contemporary political theory. Subjectivist perfectionism combines a fully subjectivist understanding of the human good with the perfectionist claim that it is permissible for the state to promote the good, actively and intentionally, of its members. The paper clarifies the subjectivism in question and shows how it can inform state efforts to promote the good. The paper also explains how more traditional perfectionist views, which are informed by an objective account of the human good, can learn from it. The paper concludes by arguing that proponents of subjectivist perfectionism are particularly well positioned to respond to and rebut Michael Kramer’s central objection to mainstream perfectionist views in his provocative book Liberalism with Excellence. This is the charge that political perfectionists manifest an objectionable busybody mentality, one that is eschewed by his own favored form of justice-based perfectionism.

  • Replies to the Symposium Articles on Liberalism With Excellence
    • Authors: Kramer M.
      Pages: 133 - 173
      Abstract: In a symposium held at Christ Church, Oxford University in June 2017, eleven philosophers presented ten papers on my 2017 book Liberalism with Excellence. Seven of those papers, in revised forms—by George Sher, Han van Wietmarschen, Paul Billingham & Anthony Taylor, Clare Chambers, Steven Wall, Cécile Laborde, and Zofia Stemplowska—have appeared in this issue of the American Journal of Jurisprudence. In this article, I reply to the main points raised by each of those papers.
