John Dewey on Democracy - Dictionary of Arguments
Gaus I 159

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.
