Politics and subsidiarity

With the upcoming election, a hot topic has of course been the role of government.  The Catholic view – subsidiarity and solidarity – is something of a third and middle way.  It is not communitarian in a marxist sense, but is also not a libertarianism.  This website provides links to some resources to learn more about subsidiarity.  The video below provides a nice, basic overview for those who don’t know what the principle of subsidiarity is.


About Kleiner

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
