Why is there a tragedy here? What is affected by the tragedy? Is there a way out of this tragedy? What is the proper scope of the public realm?These and related matters are the topics contributors to this volume examine. The main insight shared is that human individuality, as a central element of human nature, needs to be properly accommodated in a system of community life, in law, and in public policy. Moreover, placing what arguably belongs within the realm of nonpolitical governance under the rubric of public management poses serious public policy problems.
