Sharp words from John Inazu’s paper:
The aspiration of humility requires even greater self-reflection and self-discipline than tolerance. Within a confident pluralism, humility leads both the Liberal Egalitarian and the Conservative Moralist to recognize that their own beliefs and intuitions depend upon tradition-dependent values that cannot be empirically proven or fully justified by forms of rationality external to particular traditions. The liberal notion of “equality” and the conservative notion of
“morality” emerge from within particular traditions and practices whose basic premises are not endorsed by all members of the polity or by all of the private groups of civil society. Humility recognizes that we cannot presume these shared foundations within our current political practices and their epistemic limits.
