Claude Galipeau focuses on Berlins defense of political liberalism, which is based on moral pluralism and an interpretation of the historical and cultural development of western civilization rather than on abstract arguments about rights. Galipeau brings out the uniqueness and force of this defense while acknowledging, in his discussion of Berlins Zionism, the tensions and complexities inherent in it.
