    in constitutional Goods, Alan Brudner Distills The Essentials Of Liberal Constitutionalism From The Jurisprudence And Practice Of Contemporary Liberal-democratic States, And Argues That The Model Liberal-democratic Constitution Is Best Understood As A Unity Of Three Constitutional Frameworks: Libertarian, Egalitarian, And Communitarian. Each Of These Has A Particular Conception Of Public Reason. Brudner Criticizes Each Of These Frameworks Insofar As Its Organizing Conception Claims To Be Fundamental, And Moves Forward To Suggest A Hegelian Conception Of Public Reason Within Which Each Framework Is Contained As A Constituent Element Of A Whole.

    when Viewed In This Light, The Liberal Constitution Embodies A Surprising Synthesis. It Reconciles A Commitment To Individual Liberty And Freedom Of Conscience With The Perfectionist Idea That The State Ought To Cultivate A Type Of Personality Whose Fundamental Ends Are The Goods Essential To Dignity. Such A Reconciliation, The Author Suggests, May Attract Competing Liberalisms To A Consensus On An Inclusive Conception Of Public Reason Under Which Political Authority Is Validated For Those Who Share A Confidence In The Individual's Inviolable Worth.
