Democratic Theory Pateman Brocker I 505
Democratic Theory/Pateman: PatemanVsSchumpeter/PatemanVsSartori: Thesis: The formation of positive attitudes towards democracy is not a question of cognitive competence, but of democratizing a previously undemocratic institutional structure that systematically generates undemocratic attitudes and feelings of individual incompetence: the production of capitalist goods. See Democratic Theory/Schumpeter, Democratic Theory/Sartori.
Democracy/Tradition: However, the sphere of goods production must remain undemocratic to ensure productivity and efficiency. There is therefore no alternative to the democratic status quo that would not endanger democracy itself.
Brocker I 506
PatemanVsTradition: 1 VsSchumpeter: the normative evaluation scale is incorrectly constructed: the concept of a "classical democracy theory" is a myth. (1) The sources are more heterogeneous than traditionally claimed. History of ideas/Pateman: must not be reduced to pure normativity.
Labour/Democratization: 2. PatemanVsSchumpeter: Democratic participation and productivity are not contradictory.
VsPateman: Schumpeter does not reconstruct this in the dynamic aspects of his work. Taking into account Schumpeter's analysis of the importance of leadership, creativity and innovation for capitalism
Brocker I 507
would have improved the persuasiveness of her argument.

Democratic Theory Sartori Brocker I 505
Democratic Theory/Sartori: Against the background of empirical attitudes research, which has shown that the average American does not meet the normative expectations that the "classical theory of democracy" places on citizens and significant sections of the population even have authoritarian ideas, the conservative democracy theorist Sartori not only supports the then widely divided position that political apathy was desirable and more participation potentially dangerous for political stability, but also the argument that too demanding normative ideals virtually destroy democracy from within. See also Democratic Theory/Schumpeter, Democratic Theory/Pateman. PatemanVsSartori: this is a fatal logic of argumentation: citizens do not meet the normative expectations of classical theory, and therefore democratic participation must be reduced to a minimum in order to not endanger democracy.

Participation Pateman Brocker I 510
Participation/Pateman: "The existence of a democratic community therefore requires the existence of a participatory society, a society in which all political systems have been democratized and socialization through participation can take place in all areas. The most important area is industry" (1). In doing so, Pateman opposes traditional approaches of democracy theory that reduce the questions of democracy to the political. PatemanVsSchumpeter, PatemanVsSartori: see Democratic Theory/Sartori, Democratic Theory/Schumpeter.
Schaal: Pateman does not argue from a socialist perspective, but rather her demand for the extension of democratic mechanisms to non-political areas such as industrial work is based on the systematic explication of the normative ideals of liberalism.
VsPateman: her approach of "quasi-empiracy" is criticized by later authors as not convincing enough. Cf., Schonfeld, 1975, (2), Moon 1972 (3).
Brocker I 514
Pateman/Schaal: Pateman's Participation and Democratic Theory belongs to the canon of modern (english) classics of participatory democracy theory (Held 1987, 254-264 (4)) and was only replaced as a standard work of participatory democracy theory by Benjamin Barbers Strong Democracy in 1984.
