Program in Canadian Studies

Professor Richard Keshen will argue that the reasonable person can see their own values mirrored in the Canadian Constitution, and then show how this mirroring can contribute to the good of engaged citizenship for the reasonable person.  One does not have to have expertise in Canadian issues to understand the argument.

Richard Keshen is an emeritus professor of philosophy at Cape Breton University in Nova Scotia, Canada.  He has a PhD from Oxford University and is now a member of the Common Room at Wolfson College, Oxford.  The second edition of his book Reasonable Self-Esteem has recently been published, and he is now working on a book on Canadian history and political philosophy.
