Promoting injury or freedom: radical pluralism and orthodox Jewish symbolism
This article provides an interrogation of radical pluralism as an analytical and normative framework through the prism of the eruv. The eruv is a symbolic perimeter structure which, by privatizing public space, enables orthodox Jews to carry on the Sabbath beyond their homes. The article focuses on the controversial, highly contested attempt to establish an eruv in North London in the 1990s. While radical pluralism's response to the eruv constitutes a blend of neo-Marxism, feminism, poststructuralism, and communitarianism, the article critically focuses on the particular influence of liberal individualism on radical pluralism's understanding of privacy, freedom and harm.
