Knowledge Barber Brocker I 687
Knowledge/Political Knowledge/Politics/Epistemology/Barber: Thesis: Political knowledge is autonomous versus philosophical knowledge. The decisive question is: does it arise from the creative consensus of an autonomous will of the citizen? (1) Barber understands politics "as epistemology". (2) Barber: political knowledge is not subject to the supposedly absolute truth conditions of philosophy nor to the fundamental rules such as the avoidance of the naturalistic fallacy (the conclusion from being to should). See Naturalistic Fallacy.
Skepticism/Barber: this itself is only the other side of a misguided claim to truth.
Knowledge/Future/Barber: Thesis: because of its reference to a possible future, political knowledge can attain a kind of validity that can be reduced neither to principles nor to conventions. Political knowledge is reflected in "functioning rules of thumb". (3)
Judgment/truth/language/Barber: Politics is always about the question "What should we do? Individual goals would be reformulated through their public theming towards a "mutual language of public goods". (4)
((s)VsBarber: not every problem can be reformulated in a "language of public goods". Nor should it be the aim of a society form to aim for it. See Psychotherapy, Self-Discovery etc. ).

Language Barber Brocker I 687
Language/Barber: Politics is always about the question "What should we do? Individual goals would be reformulated through their public theming towards a "mutual language of public goods". (1) ((s)VsBarber: not every problem can be reformulated in a "language of public goods". This should not be the aim of a society form either. E.g. psychotherapy, self-discovery etc. It would be an expression of extreme reification to demand that language should be oriented towards the form of public goods. See Reification.

Participation Barber Brocker I 681
Participation/Democracy/Barber: Thesis: in American democracy reigns a "lobbyist policy", a "politics of images", a "politics of mass society" instead of genuine citizen participation. (written in 1984). (1) Liberalism or the concept of representation associated with liberalism, which destroys participation, was responsible for this. (2) Def Strong Democracy/Barber: is "formally" a participatory policy. In the absence of an independent reason, disagreement is resolved by participation in a process of continuous, direct self-legislation and by the creation of a political community that can transform dependent, private individuals into free citizens and particular and private interests into public goods. (3)
Brocker I 692
HausVsBarber: the impetus of participation as a practical reform programme has visibly evaporated. The approaches are far removed from Barbers agenda, both quantitatively and qualitatively. There is still no comprehensive policy of "strong democracy". Barber himself puts his last hope on the mayors of this earth.
