About this book

This anthology opens with four essays by Jon Elster, Jurgen Habermas, Joshua Cohen, and John Rawls that help establish this inquiry into deliberative models of democracy. The nine essays that follow represent the efforts of leading democratic theorists to tackle various problems of deliberative democracy. All the contributions address tensions that arise between reason and politics in a democracy inspired by the ideal of achieving reasoned agreement among free and equal citizens. Although the authors approach the topic of deliberation from different perspectives, they all aim to provide a theoretical basis for a more robust democratic practice.
