In this chapter, we will examine whether and how Dworkin’s defense of state neutrality is reconcilable with his defense of state subsidies for art. After a short discussion of Dworkin’s egalitarian liberalism, we will mainly focus on his paper Can a Liberal State Support Art? Following an analysis of his argumentation, attention is also given to some fundamental objections.
