Multiculturalism and problems of Canadian unity
von Heyking, John
Universitatsverlag Winter GmbH Heidelberg
Examines the confusion that multiculturalism has wrought in Canadian political life by considering 1) multiculturalism as a national symbol within the context of the postmaterialist shift from the politics of interests to the politics of identity; 2) multiculturalism as a symbol of the cosmopolitan ideal to redeem historic injustices toward the marginalized; 3) multicultural diversity as cosmopolitan monism; and 4) a concluding consideration to think more constructively about multicultural society.
