Deliberative democracy : essays on reason and politics by James Bohman( )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 2,601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The anthology opens with four key essays - by Jon Elster, Jurgen Habermas, Joshua Cohen, and John Rawls - that helped establish the current inquiry into deliberative models of democracy. The nine essays that follow represent the latest 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
Public deliberation : pluralism, complexity, and democracy by James Bohman( )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 2,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bohman builds on early Critical Theory and on the recent work of Jurgen Habermas and John Rawls (while taking into consideration criticisms of their work) to create a picture of a richer democratic practice based on the public reasoning of citizens. Starting with an account of how deliberation actually works to promote agreement and cooperation, he develops a realistic model of deliberation by gradually introducing and analyzing the major tests facing deliberative democracy: cultural pluralism, social inequalities, social complexity, and community-wide biases and ideologies. The result is a new understanding of the ways in which public deliberation can be extended to meet the needs of modern societies

Democracy across borders : from Dêmos to Dêmoi by James Bohman( )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today democracy is both exalted as the 'best means to realize human rights' and seen as weakened because of globalization and delegation of authority beyond the nation-state. In this book, James Bohman argues that democracies face a period of renewal and transformation and that democracy itself needs redefinition according to a new transnational ideal. Democracy, he writes, should be rethought in the plural; it should no longer be understood as rule by the people (demos), singular, with a specific territorial identification and connotation, but as rule by peoples (demoi), across national boundaries

New philosophy of social science : problems of indeterminacy by James Bohman( Book )

32 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is without equal in reflecting the actual state of debate in the various social sciences. The wide range of issues considered and the reliance on case studies from the actual practice of social inquiry make this the best available text on the subject."--Thomas McCarthy, Northwestern University "A first-rate overview of and contribution to contemporary debates in the philosophy of the social sciences ... Like philosophers of natural science, Bohman places more emphasis than his predecessors on careful examination of successful research, more emphasis on what presuppositions researchers bring to their work, and less emphasis on demarcating 'good' from 'bad' science by appeal to first principles ..." -- D. Christie, University of New Hampshire, Choice
