This is a reminder for:

Title: Ben Cross
“Liberalism and Social Perfectionism”
One of the most prevalent topics in the vast array of literature written on  
liberal political philosophy is the role of perfectionism in a liberal  
society.  However, any such discussions of perfectionism are normally  
confined to the role of political perfectionism – should the liberal state  
have any role in promoting one conception of the good life over another?   
There seem to me to be very few substantive discussions of the relationship  
between the liberal state and what Will Kymlicka calls social  
perfectionism, a term he uses to refer to those individuals, communities  
and associations who pursue a particular conception of the good life  
without any direct support from the exercise of political power.  This  
paper is an examination of this relationship.  Specifically, I will argue  
for two claims: first, that a liberal society is inhospitable towards  
social perfectionism; second, that it is likely that this poses a problem  
for the coherence of the former, but not the latter.
