Beyond the Cultural Argument

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines arguments that link national community with a particular type of culture, and then links culture with something that is valued (autonomy, well‐being). Versions of this argument have been put forward by Tamir, Miller, Kymlicka, MacCormick, Margalit, and Raz. This chapter argues that it is important to distinguish between a culture and national identity.

Keywords: autonomy; community; culture; nation; national identity; well‐being
