Durant ces trente dernières années, les sociétés occidentales se sont profondément libéralisées. Cette libéralisation a rendu possible de réels progrès sociaux, mais elle s'est également accompagnée d'une perte de confiance dans l'Etat, d'une instabilité financière et d'une dilution du lien social, ainsi que d'un affaiblissement de la solidarité interpersonnelle et d'un sentiment de perte de sens. Cette face sombre de la libéralisation nourrit aujourd'hui l'émergence de phénomènes réactionnaires dont témoigne la recrudescence du nationalisme, de l'intégrisme et du populisme. Vouloir poursuivre le mouvement de progrès social nécessite par conséquent de repenser le sens que doit avoir aujourd'hui le politique. La philosophie politique dominante dans les principaux partis de gauche comme de droite, le libéralisme politique, doit être dépassée au profit d'une conception différente du politique : l'humanisme démocratique. Si le libéralisme valorise la poursuite du bonheur individuel, l'humanisme démocratique incite à retrouver, tant individuellement que collectivement, ce qui constitue le sens du politique : la recherche de l'intérêt général.

'Deliberative democracy' is often dismissed as a set of small-scale, academic experiments. This volume seeks to demonstrate how the deliberative ideal can work as a theory of democracy on a larger scale. It provides a new way of thinking about democratic engagement across the spectrum of political action, from towns and villages to nation states, and from local networks to transnational, even global systems. Written by a team of the world's leading deliberative theorists, Deliberative Systems explains the principles of this new approach, which seeks ways of ensuring that a division of deliberative labour in a system nonetheless meets both deliberative and democratic norms. Rather than simply elaborating the theory, the contributors examine the problems of implementation in a real world of competing norms, competing institutions and competing powerful interests. This pioneering book will inspire an exciting new phase of deliberative research, both theoretical and empirical.

Examining how people want their democratic government to work, this study finds that Americans don't like many of the practices associated with democracy: the conflicts, the debates, the compromises. It finds that Americans don't want to have to see democracy in practice, nor do they want to be involved in politics. If American citizens had their way, political decisions would be made by unselfish decision-makers, lessening the need for monitoring government.

Why Democracy Needs Public Goods

Author : Angela Kallhoff
ISBN : 9780739168004
Genre : Philosophy
File Size : 26.53 MB
Format : PDF

Why Democracy Needs Public Goods provides arguments for a new theoretical perspective in favor of public goods. Kallhoff details the benefits of public goods for any democratic state: they contribute to social inclusion, help generate the public forum, and foster national identity. These arguments are supplemented by reconsidering major counter-arguments against this approach, both from political theory and from theories on public finance. Political philosophers, political theorists, and political economists will benefit most from this perspective.

The Political Classroom

Helping students develop their ability to deliberate political questions is an essential component of democratic education, but introducing political issues into the classroom is pedagogically challenging and raises ethical dilemmas for teachers. Diana E. Hess and Paula McAvoy argue that teachers will make better professional judgments about these issues if they aim toward creating "political classrooms," which engage students in deliberations about questions that ask, "How should we live together?" Based on the findings from a large, mixed-method study about discussions of political issues within high school classrooms, The Political Classroom presents in-depth and engaging cases of teacher practice. Paying particular attention to how political polarization and social inequality affect classroom dynamics, Hess and McAvoy promote a coherent plan for providing students with a nonpartisan political education and for improving the quality of classroom deliberations.

"There is nothing quite like this book in the contemporary literature. It fills a salient vacuum and would make a fine contribution to a number of debates." - Philip Pettit, Professor of Social and Political Theory, Australian National University, Canberra. "The book offers high-level philosophical analysis of a topical issue, that of nationalism. The author takes a partisan, cosmopolitan position towards his subject. His main aim is to show that cultural isolationism, hostility towards the neighbors etc. . . . are logical consequences of nationalism." - János Kis, Professor of Political Philosophy, Central European University
