About the Author

Jack Lively's central concerns in political theory were the study of Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment thought, in particular the study of democracy, and the defence of liberal values of rational political engagement and ameliorative social policy. Political theory was to be pursued by combining political realism with moral seriousness. He wished to resist (once?) fashionable ideas about the death of liberalism, the impossibility of rational political discourse, and the allegedly crippling relativity of morality.
