Professor James Boettcher
I work in the areas of social and political philosophy, especially contemporary political theory. I’m especially interested in the following issues in social and political philosophy:  conceptions of citizenship, theories of liberalism and deliberative democracy, multiculturalism and group rights, cosmopolitanism, toleration, and the role of religion in political decision-making.


Dr. John McCall
