Review

"Kingwell's central thesis is that civility is both a precondition of justice under conditions of moral pluralism and a commitment that would emerge from a dialogue oriented towards the discovery of just norms. The notion of civility is developed in a rich and interesting way, grounding it both ethically and historically, and it is defended through a series of powerful and convincing arguments. This work makes an important contribution to a vibrant area of contemporary political theory. It will be of interest to scholars in political theory, including people whose disciplinary homes are political science, sociology, philosophy, and literary studies."--J. Donald Moon, Wesleyan University "Kingwell shows how, despite wide disparities of perspective and interest, participants in political conversation can arrive at shared principles of justice. Beautifully written and powerfully (though politely) argued, A Civil Tongue makes an original and important contribution to the conversation of contemporary political theory."--Spitz Prize Selection Committee Kingwell s central thesis is that civility is both a precondition of justice under conditions of moral pluralism and a commitment that would emerge from a dialogue oriented towards the discovery of just norms.
