Title: Alexandre Lefebvre
Liberalism as a Way of Life: on the Spiriritual Exercises of John Rawls

What would it mean for liberalism to be depicted as a self-standing way of  
life? Or, to use terms favoured by liberal political philosophers, what  
would it mean for liberalism be a depicted as its own comprehensive  
doctrine: not in the sense of being an offshoot of some other kind or  
worldview (whether religious or secular), but as itself an ethos and system  
of moral beliefs that encompasses the whole of one’s life and which needs  
no other source or support? In this talk, I argue that one version of  
liberalism “as a way of life” can be found in John Rawls’s work, and more  
particularly, in what is basically the only under-explored area of his  
philosophy: the moral psychology developed in Part III of A Theory of  
Justice, along with a series of unpublished essays and lectures from his  
papers archived at Harvard University.  My goal will be to sketch a liberal  
way of living that, while not for everyone, and very clearly not for use as  
a political or constitutional blueprint, is ambitious, attractive, and  
available for us today.
