A Pragmatist Philosophy of Democracy: Communities of Inquiry by Robert B. Talisse

By Robert B. Talisse

In contemporary years there was a renewed curiosity in American pragmatism. In political philosophy, the revival of pragmatism has resulted in a brand new appreciation for the democratic idea of John Dewey.


In this ebook, Robert B. Talisse advances a sequence of pragmatic arguments opposed to Deweyan democracy. really, Talisse argues that Deweyan democracy can't appropriately realize pluralism, the truth that clever, honest, and well-intentioned individuals can disagree sharply and fairly over ethical beliefs. Drawing upon the epistemology of the founding father of pragmatism, Charles S. Peirce, Talisse develops a belief of democracy that's anti-Deweyan yet still pragmatist. Talisse then brings the Peircean view into serious dialog with modern advancements in democratic conception, together with deliberative democracy, Rawlsian political liberalism, and Richard Posner’s democratic realism. the result's a brand new pragmatist choice in democratic theory.
