Just, Reasonable Multiculturalism? For Philosophia Symposium on Just, Reasonable Multiculturalism (CUP, 2021)

Abstract

This article explains why I decided to write the book Just, Reasonable Multiculturalism (CUP, 2021), my appreciation of multiculturalism, and my puzzlement when I heard growing attacks on multiculturalism, describing it as one of the causes of extremist ideology and radicalization. Those attacks brought me to write this book.
I discuss some of the main themes of my book: male circumcision, which was the most difficult chapter for me to write; Amish education that brought to my attention a new concern, child abuse, of which I was not aware at first; legal precedents concerning women and minorities and, finally, the two countries I examined in which security considerations underlie and trigger discrimination against minorities: France and Israel.
