John Dewey on Democracy - Dictionary of Arguments

Democracy/Dewey/Bohman: John Dewey already argued that democracy itself is not a feasible idea unless there exists 'full publicity', or free and open communication necessary for deliberation as a form of social inquiry. Whatever obstructs or restricts publicity, he argued, 'limits and distorts public opinion and checks and distorts thinking on social affairs' (Dewey, 1988(1): 339). >Discourse/Bohman, >Discourse theory/Bohman, >Democracy/Discourse theories.
