"Human flourishing requires a robust form of governmental pluralism with autonomy in its domains". This was stated by David Thunder, researcher principal of the project RESPUBLICA of the Institute for Culture and Society (ICS) of the University of Navarra, in the context of the international symposium Ex Pluribus Unum: articulating Res Publica in a complex society.
The event, funded by the Fundación Ciudadanía y Valores and Proeduca, featured speakers from institutions in the USA, Spain, Italy, India, UK and Sweden. It was part of the III International congress 'Philosophy and City'.
"The human good is susceptible to a wide range of different interpretations and involves a wide range of dimensions," said researcher of the ICS. In his view, this calls for "a form of civil order that can facilitate cooperation, a plurality of diverse and independent governments with strong forms of authority over their respective domains."
