  • Truth and Politics: A Symposium on Peter Simpson’s Political
           Illiberalism: A Defense of Freedom
    • Authors: Bradley GV.
      First page: 1
      Abstract: There is no more important question in thinking about life—and actually living—in political community than whether it is to be permeated by, and purposefully oriented around, the main truths about human flourishing. It is at least paradoxical that, precisely when the state and its law and political life are shaping people’s lives more and more, the professed roots of all this influence are growing thinner, more shallow. Lawmakers who profess and in many cases even think they should be “neutral” about values are more involved with how persons’ lives go than, perhaps, ever before.

  • Political Philosophy and Political Illiberalism: A Critical Response to
           Peter Simpson
    • Authors: Talisse RB.
      First page: 7
      Abstract: AbstractPeter Simpson’s Political Illiberalism endeavors to provide a robust articulation and defense of a truly illiberal alternative to liberal political philosophy. I argue that Simpson’s project founders on two grounds. First, his polemical arguments against liberalism are insufficiently engaged with contemporary liberal theories. Second, his constructive case for illiberalism manifests a surprising failure of nerve in that, without explanation, Simpson retreats from the more extremely illiberal political view that his explicit premises seem to entail.

  • Must Rawlsians be Hamiltonians? Small Government and Political
           Illiberalism
    • Authors: Beerbohm E.
      First page: 21
      Abstract: AbstractIs liberal egalitarianism committed to big government? This response argues that the relationship may be one of convenience. It starts with Peter Simpson’s recent argument for a decentralized authority far weaker than the recognizable state. From the minimalist baseline set by Political Illiberalism, the paper then considers what elements of the state are necessary for liberal egalitarianism. What follows is an underpopulated institutional position, “small government egalitarianism,” which pairs a highly redistributive state with a small public sector.

  • Aristotle and Modern Politics
    • Authors: Rahe PA.
      First page: 29
      Abstract: AbstractPeter Simpson has performed a great service by highlighting three things: the manner in which the longings that make man a political animal make him a religious animal as well, the intimate connection that always in the past subsisted between the political and the religious spheres, and the degree to which the modern liberal polity’s institution of an artificial separation between the two marks a break with all previous theory and practice. Although I think this separation fragile and always in need of defense, in sharp contrast with Simpson, I argue on Aristotelian grounds that it is highly advantageous both for politics and religion—especially, within Christendom where, in earlier times, doctrinal disputes repeatedly threatened the public peace. Finally, I suggest that the administrative centralization that Simpson rightly laments was due to the Progressives who embraced a critique of the classical liberalism of the American Founders not unlike Simpson’s own.

  • The Polemic against Liberalism
    • Authors: Zuckert M.
      First page: 45
      Abstract: AbstractNobody will dare accuse Peter Simpson’s Political Illiberalism of being a “politically correct” book. It considers America and other modern states to be great despotisms, and unabashedly calls for a return to a politics on the model of the Holy Roman Empire. It is in part a ferocious critique of liberalism in its various forms—classical as developed by philosophers like John Locke and John Stuart Mill and contemporary, as developed by John Rawls and others. Simpson has a “take no prisoners” approach to the liberalism he opposes. In my essay I turn to his presentation of the nature of liberalism. I have four topics: 1) who speaks for liberalism? 2) Does Max Weber identify the essence of the liberal state, as Simpson seems to believe? 3) What is the Lockean liberal theory of the state in relation to natural law and natural rights? 4) How do Simpson’s illiberal politics compare to liberal politics?

  • Should We Abolish the State? Neo-Thomist Reflections on Peter
           Simpson’s Radical Proposal
    • Authors: Lewis V.
      First page: 59
      Abstract: AbstractIn Political Illiberalism Peter Simpson argues that the modern state is necessarily despotic and should be replaced with something more like the classical city. Simpson’s account is informed by the thought of Aristotle (and, to a lesser degree, Aquinas). This paper first raises questions about the workability and prudence of Simpson’s proposal on its own, and then considers an alternative account of the state informed by Neo-Thomist political thinkers who are also Aristotelians. It concludes with some suggestions about the relationship between theory and practice in liberal politics.

  • Coercion, Political Authority and the Common Good
    • Authors: Brady P.
      First page: 75
      Abstract: AbstractIn Political Illiberalism Peter Simpson treats what he terms the state’s “monopoly of coercion” as a peculiar consequence of modern political theorising in the mode of a liberalism that runs from Hobbes to Rawls. Drawing on arguments advanced by Thomistic thinkers such as Yves Simon and John Finnis, this paper argues that Simpson is mistaken, and that, within the Aristotelian tradition of political theory broadly advocated by Simpson, there is a cogent line of argument that this so called “monopoly of coercion” is in fact a practically reasonable consequence of the very nature of political authority and the requirements of the common good in a well-ordered community living under the Rule of Law.

  • Comment on Peter Simpson’s Political Illiberalism
    • Authors: Kinneging AM.
      First page: 89
      Abstract: AbstractIn this contribution Peter Simpson’s defense of illiberalism against liberalism is taken as a specimen of the defense of traditionalism against modernism. The question posed is whether Simpson gives an adequate picture of these worldviews. The paper argues that he does not. As to modernism, most importantly, Simpson takes the Enlightenment variety of modernism, rooted in Hobbes, to be its only variety, entirely overlooking the Romantic variety, rooted in Rousseau, which in the contemporary world is at least as influential. As to traditionalism, Simpson seems to believe that, like modernism, it is also principally concerned with liberty, but in a more sensible way. In truth, traditionalism is mainly concerned with entirely different things, such as sin, discipline/obedience, hierarchy, and metanoia, none of which are mentioned, let alone discussed by Simpson.

  • On Peter Simpson on “Illiberal Liberalism”
    • Authors: George RP.
      First page: 103
      Abstract: AbstractIs “liberalism,” as the term is used by leading contemporary self-described liberals such as the late John Rawls and the late Ronald Dworkin, and as put into practice by the contemporary left in western democratic nations, inherently illiberal? Peter Simpson argues cogently that it is. “Anti-perfectionist” or “neutralist” liberalism—liberalism that purports strictly to limit the scope for lawmaking on the basis of what makes for or detracts from a valuable and morally worthy way of life—ends up compromising important and honorable freedoms by absolutizing a radical, and radically partial, conception of freedom itself, one that leaves no room for consideration of the truth concerning these matters or renders their truth irrelevant (or relevant only in highly biased, partial, and tendentious ways) to questions of law and policy related to issues of profound human and moral significance, such as abortion, marriage and sexual morality, and assisted suicide and euthanasia.

  • For What May We Hope? An Appreciation of Peter Simpson’s
           Political Illiberalism
    • Authors: O’Connor DK.
      First page: 111
      Abstract: AbstractPeter Simpson’s Political Illiberalism defends a Hobbesian view of the dominant liberal political regimes of the West. In practice, the theoretical liberalism animating these regimes has not and cannot sustain any limits on government power. Simpson articulates a Roman Catholic alternative for limited sovereignty, animated by the complementary principles of subsidiarity and solidarity. Two reservations: (1) War and “national security” have driven and justified the unlimited centralization and expansion of political power in liberal regimes. Simpson’s Hobbesian view of the internal life of liberalism invites the question of whether this centralized expansion is necessary for survival in an equally Hobbesian external world. War and international affairs play little role in Simpson’s analysis. (2) The Roman Catholic notion of solidarity in the last half-century may not in practice complement subsidiarity and limited sovereignty so much as supplant it, an issue I illustrate with Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.

  • Truth and Complexity: Notes on Music and Liberalism
    • Authors: Finnis J.
      First page: 119
      Abstract: AbstractSimpson’s Political Illiberalism restores to its proper place in political theory Plato’s thesis that bad music imperils the whole culture and polity, a thesis ignored with utter recklessness in contemporary liberal practice and, for the most part, theory. But Simpson’s elaboration of the thesis over-simplifies the characteristics of Bach’s (and later) “modern” music that make it dangerous, somewhat in the way that the Providential “composing” of human history, with all its complexities, involves discord and danger. One such hazardous complexity is the addition of prophetic divine revelation (“Jerusalem”) to the achievements of (divinely given) human reason exercised in natural science and philosophy (“Athens”). The eventual completion of revelation includes the lapidary “Render to Caesar …” formula, the two poles of which our soi-disant liberal doctrines about public good characteristically reduce to one. These Notes, complementary to Simpson’s book, suggest that such a unilateral prioritizing of public peace over truth is inherently prejudicial to the political community’s more fundamental common good, a common good prejudiced also by parallel failings at the ecclesiastical pole.

  • Political Illiberalism: A Response to My Critics
    • Authors: Simpson PP.
      First page: 125
      Abstract: AbstractThis response to critics of Political Illiberalism does not take and answer each critic in turn, but follows rather a thematic order as indicated by the several subheadings. The order starts with some general criticisms and proceeds, as occasion offers, to more particular ones. However, for ease of reference, the names of the critics whose remarks are dealt with in each case are added in parentheses to the subheadings (though note that frequency of mention does not equate to degree of importance or attention given). The point of this procedure is the same as the point of the Symposium, to keep the thesis of the book and its several parts most in focus while nevertheless not hiding the author or object of the criticisms. A drawback of thus not responding to each criticism of each critic in turn is that some criticisms will be missed. But trying to cover everything, apart from being almost impossible to achieve, would make the article long and unwieldy and run the risk of hiding the wood for the trees. My aim instead was to respond to what seemed most relevant for the clarification and defense of my thesis, so that as little doubt as possible would be left about what the thesis really amounts to, and so that a fair acceptance or rejection of it, whether in whole or in part, might the more easily be reached.
