As many of you know, my dissertation will try to resolve the liberal society / consensus versus multiple traditions stalemate. Like, on page two, I quote Rogers Smith regarding “multiple traditions.” I explore the possibility of authoritarianism and republicanism in America. So, on Thursday, I will be in Detroit!
