The Democratic Horizon PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Democratic Horizon free pdf Alessandro Ferrara explains what he terms 'the democratic horizon' - the idea that democracy is no longer simply one form of government among others, but is instead almost universally regarded as the only legitimate form of government, the horizon to which most of us look. Professor Ferrara reviews the challenges under which democracies must operate, focusing on hyperpluralism, and impresses a new twist onto the framework of political liberalism. He shows that distinguishing real democracies from imitations can be difficult, responding to this predicament by enriching readers' understanding of the spirit of democracy- clearing readers' views of pluralism from residues of ethnocentrism- and conceiving multiple versions of democratic culture, rooted in the diversity of civilizational contexts.
