There is an inherent value in relationships amongst people through conversation. This response to Robert A. Burt's article argues that the value in having such dialogue, despite differences among us, stems not solely from the desire for equality; but rather stems from a deeper notion of common good such as community, morality, or something else.

Board of Education: A Frances Lewis Law Center Colloquium, 42 Washington & Lee Law Review 1 (1985).
