Abstract:
The paper deals with objections to a convergence model of public reason raised in Jonathon Quong's Liberalism Without Perfection. It provides a short account of reasons, an overview of convergence and consensus models of public reason and recounts Quong's objections to the convergence model. Having done this the paper critiques Quong's arguments. Over the course of this critique it discusses the difference between wide and narrow scope reasons and gives a brief account of arguments as defeaters.
