The Liberal Tortoise is about … Liberalism
I’m a political philosopher trained in the analytic tradition. I’ve worked on liberal political thought for fifteen years, talking mostly to philosophers, political scientists, and economists. I’m now spreading my wings a bit to talk about liberalism to a broader intellectual audience, including very online young people skeptical of the liberal tradition.
I find contemporary discussions of liberalism mostly crude and unhelpful. I created this free (one-year) Substack to encourage more careful reflection on liberalism and the arguments for and against it. I want to go slow because I think the slow and steady approach is essential to preserving liberal order.
