This chapter examines the notion of communitarian liberalism. Selznick emerged as a “communitarian liberal” with his writing of The Moral Commonwealth, where he supplemented his fundamental liberal commitments with communitarian elements. He argued that modern communitarianism must absorb the achievements of modernity and the values of liberalism—the latter a product and particular interpretation, in political practice and theory, of the former. It must because there is no realistic alternative to the former, and there is no morally acceptable alternative to the latter.
