Politics Pettit Brocker I 858
Politics/Depoliticization/Pettit: Pettit defines "depoliticization"(1) as distancing political decision-making from an emotionally charged, moralizing and clichédly prejudiced struggle of opinion in which he fears that simple and polarizing platitudes rather than public welfare-oriented considerations will prevail. Instead of, however, in a good republican tradition, branding this shift from public welfare orientation to strategic, effect-hasty incitement as a process of "de-politicization", as an alarming loss of civic political judgement, Pettit understands de-politicization exactly the other way round as a taming of the downright dreaded will of the people by a rationality examination of the arguments, which circulate and meet in the public opinion struggle exercised by experts. (2) ((s) PettitVsHabermas). ((s) "Government of Experts", "Government of Technocrats", "Technical Cabinets" (See also Sartori). PettitVsRepublicanism: Pettit obviously does not share the republican punch line that "politicization" is precisely the measure for the ability to make intuitive and conscious references to the common good.
John P. McCormickVsPettit: In this respect, says disrespectfully that Pettit has made a democratically forgotten, institution-centred "senatorial move" and shows the tendency to neglect the problem horizon of nurturing and sharpening the political judgement of citizens, a genuine and central concern of Republican thought. (3)
RichterVsPettit: Pettit did not succeed in resolving the tension between state trust and criticism of power, between civic participation and elite trust which he is building.
PettitVsRawls: see Justice/Pettit.

Republicanism Barber Brocker I 685
Republicanism/BarberVsRepublicanism/Barber: In a self-governing community of citizens united less by uniform interests than by civic education, people have acquired the ability to pursue common purposes through civic attitudes rather than trough altruism or good nature. (1) This sets Barber apart from ancient democracy as well as classical republicanism. Ultimately, Barber even accuses liberal democracy of favouring a type of person who is more exposed to totalitarian temptations. (2)
