Concentrating on the meanings of moral conflict through an analysis of the work of Alasdair MacIntyre and Richard Rorty, the book provides a defence of an ""agonistic liberalism"" drawn from the work of Isaiah Berlin which puts conflict over values at the heart of its critical concerns. But in so doing and drawing on writers from a variety of intellectual positions, including enlightenment, postmodern and feminist analyses, it argues that the practices and presuppositions of liberal legalism - exemplified in writers such as Ronald Dworkin, Neil MacCormick and Robert Alexy - must be challenged as failing to live up to the aspirations of agonistic liberal theory.
