Quebec Identity The Challenge of Pluralism by Jocelyn Maclure

Quebec Identity The Challenge of Pluralism


Quebec Identity The Challenge of Pluralism by Jocelyn Maclure

This hermeneutically and theoretically rich work opens new, potentially fertile, avenues of investigation and dialogue. It is an immensely valuable contribution to our national reconstitution. Charles Taylor, from the Preface.


Maclure's book is one of the leading statements of a new generation of Quebec's young public intellectuals and has been a major site of discussion and debate in Quebec since its publication. There is no other text that brings English-reading Canadian scholars, students and concerned citizens up to date on the way the debate on citizenship, nationalism, and identity is rapidly changing in Quebec. James Tully, Jackman Professor of Philosophical Studies, University of Toronto /// Maclure seeks to promote an original third way,
an identity story that takes into account the pluralism of choices, of individual and group ambivalences, of multiethnicity, and of the diverse societal identities to be found in a postmodern society such as today

's Quebec. The strength of this very rich work is that it welcomes everyone into to the discussion with the deepest respect. This new Quebec, as conceived by a new generation of prolific intellectuals, gives us great hope for the future. Louis Balthazar in Quebec Studies'
