Abstract

Since the early 1980s a distinguished group of philosophers, political theorists, and sociologists has been working in a tradition of thought that has come to be called the communitarian tradition. Many of the thinkers regarded as communitarians do not call themselves communitarians. The thinkers who are most self-identified as communitarians are Etzioni (1993), Galston (1991), and Selznick (1992). Etzioni and Galston, as well as Glendon (1991) cofounded the Communitarian Network in 1991.
