Festenstein, M. (2004) Deliberative Democracy and Two Models of Pragmatism. European Journal of Social Theory, 7 (3). pp. 291-306. ISSN 1368-4310
This article examines the relationship of pragmatism to the theory of deliberative democracy. It elaborates a dilemma in the latter theory, between its deliberative or epistemic and democratic or inclusive components, and distinguishes responses to this dilemma that are internal to the conception of deliberation employed from those that are external. The article goes on to identify two models of pragmatism and critically examines how well each one deals with the tension identified in deliberative democracy.
