Philip Pettit on Governance - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 855
Rule/Government/Pettit: Pettit wants to create the image of public life that offers freedom without domination. His ideal-typical conceptualization of the political sphere should be pluralistic, adaptable and focused on sustainability. It should not only balance out different interests and needs in an egalitarian direction, but also foster public sensitivity to ecological issues, women's emancipation, minority problems and multicultural coexistence. Pettit is particularly concerned with related constitutional law problems.
Brocker I 856
