Public reason

“Public reason is the phrase used by American philosopher John Rawls to refer to the common reason of all citizens in a pluralist society. Public reason is contrasted by Rawls with the nonpublic reason employed by citizens as members of religious associations or as adherents to particular moral and philosophical doctrines.”
