Kevin Vallier is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Bowling Green State University. He is the author of Liberal Politics and Public Faith: Beyond Separation and Must Politics Be War?: Restoring Our Trust in the Open Society. Kevin discusses the key problem for political theory in our current situation—that Americans today are far less likely to trust their institutions, and each other, than in decades past. Kevin’s focus is on how diverse people can cooperate despite their differences and why liberalism is the answer to our contemporary culture wars.
