Anti-imperial Racial vs. Anti-racial Color-blind vs. 2 It is not the case, of course, that these different species of liberalism have been equally represented in the ideational sphere or equally implemented in the institutional sphere.

RACE AND THE SOCIAL CONTRACT Let me begin with some general points about the social contract. The concept is, of course, to be taken not literally but rather as an illuminating metaphor or thought experiment. We are asked to imagine the socio-political order (society, the state) as being self-consciously brought into existence through a “contract” among human beings in a pre-social, pre-political stage of humanity (the “state of nature”). The enduring appeal of the metaphor, despite its patent absurdity as a literal representation of the formation of socio-political systems, inheres in its capturing of two key insights.
