520    Free Public Reason examines the idea of public 
       justification, stressing its importance but also 
       questioning the coherence of the concept itself. Although 
       public justification is employed in the work of theorists 
       such as John Rawls, Jeremy Waldron, Thomas Nagel, and 
       others, it has receivedlittle attention on its own as a 
       philosophical concept. In this book Fred D'Agostino shows 
       that the concept is composed of various values, interests,
       and notions of the good, and that no ranking of these is 
       possible. The notion of public justification itself is 
       thus shown to be contestable. Indemonstrating this, 
       D'Agostino undermines many current political theories that
       rely on this concept. Having broken down the foundations 
       of public justification, D'Agostino then offers an 
       alternative model of how a workable consensus on its 
       meaning might be reached through the interactions of 
       acommunity of interpreters or delegates at a 
       constitutional convention
