This essay sets up a dialogue between political anthropology and cultural psychology to examine how they expose the slippages between public reason and embodied morality within multiculturalism. By examining the work of Richard Shweder and Elizabeth Povinelli on radical alterity, morality and bodily practices, the essay details how cultural psychology and anthropology identify similar impulses and impasses within multiculturalism. Moreover, it advances a critical reading of cultural psychology's larger framing of debates about multiculturalism around the question of tolerance.

Keywords:   Multiculturalism, recognition, morality, FGM, liberal feminism, tolerance
