Blaug, Ricardo (2000) Citizenship and political judgment: between discourse ethics and phronesis. Res Publica, 6 (2). pp. 179-198. ISSN 1356-4765Full text not available from this repository.
Political judgment is notoriously hard to theorize. In the recent debates surrounding Jurgen Habermas's discourse ethics, one encounters classic disagreements around the nature, operation, & validity of such judgments. Here, Habermas's account of political judgment is evaluated, & the problems raised by his critics are explored. Also considered is the contentious role played by universals within his account. What emerges is a reformulated theory of judgment based on the thin universalism of fair deliberation, & a description of a subset of judgments, termed "democratic judgments," oriented toward the preservation of democracy.
