Texte du rabat

In recent years the implications of 'multiculturalism' for American society have been the subject of much debate. To some the term has come to denote the fragmentation of tradition and the coherent values that derive from it. To others it signals the advent of a more inclusive, tolerant, and genuinely democratic society.Drawing on philosophy's longstanding concern with issues of pluralism and relativism, on the traditions of American pragmatism, and on modern theoretical innovations, the essays in this volume bring clarity to this discussion by analyzing the underlying values and assumptions of each side.



Résumé
To some, ""multiculturalism"" means the fragmentation of tradition; to others, it signals the advent of a genuinely democratic society. This volume analyses the values and assumptions of each side and offers a defence of diversity, whether inside or outside the walls of the academy.
