  • Editor’s Introduction
    • Abstract: What is democracy' Is it a form, or a quality' A process, or a goal' A type of government, or a relation between government and governed and among the governed themselves' Is it “a” thing at all, or is it thoroughly plural—not just historically or demographically, but logically, morally, and metaphysically' Finally, whatever its essential nature, is democracy a genuine possibility that actual communities can realize given enough hard work and thinking' Or is it merely a rhetorical device for eliciting, from the powerful, the bare minimum of justice required to forestall chaos'In a variety of ways—some complementary, some (at least apparently) contradictory—all the contributors to this volume of The Good Society ...

  • Friendship without Reciprocation' Aristotle, Nietzsche, and Blanchot
    • Abstract: What role does reciprocation play in friendship and how can this help us with contemporary understandings of the political bond' For a number of decades a body of work has been developing which attempts to re-conceptualize civic and political relations using the concept of friendship.1 This body of work either argues for an explicit form of political friendship, or it uses friendship as a model or ideal for civic relations such as citizenship. This work suggests that political or civic friendship can form the basis of a new social bond, a bond that variously invokes care, joint projects, and affection to overcome the perceived individualization, alienation, and fragmentation of contemporary (Western) societies. ...

  • Reimagining Education’s Role in the Imagined Community: Toward a More
           Comprehensive Theory of Political Socialization
    • Abstract: Benedict Anderson’s book Imagined Communities presents citizenship as membership in a community “[of] deep, horizontal comradeship” within a nation of unique individuals.1 In this vision of the imagined community, Anderson spotlights an important and frequently ignored reality of political and civic life—individuals’ deep desire for a sense of belonging to a community. Individuals’ desires to connect to an imagined community invoked in Anderson’s work mirrors individuals’ daily searches for connection, which psychologists have long recognized as a fundamental human need.2 This search for connection does not occur, however, in isolation, as community’s construction of their identity and boundaries influences and ...

  • Displacing Fear from Education: Regaining Cognitive Compassion and
           Democracy
    • Abstract: “Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry. . . . I’m not trying to tell you,” he said, “that only educated and scholarly men are able to contribute something valuable to the world. ... Read More

  • The Politics of Friendship: Hannah Arendt and the Organizing of the
           Industrial Areas Foundation
    • Abstract: In my first week on the job as an organizer with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the country’s oldest community organizing network, my boss Ernesto Cortes told me to read the lead chapter of Hannah Arendt’s Men in Dark TimesIn between meetings with pastors, teachers and parents in East Los Angeles, I attempted to make sense of Arendt’s critique of fraternity and compassion and, most perplexing of all, her criticism of solidarity among the persecuted. In our first meeting, Cortes grilled me on what Arendt meant by “the world” and why she so celebrated Lessing’s aim to be “no man’s brother and every man’s friend.”1 I stumbled through a response.For those familiar with the IAF and what is often called ...

  • Editor’s Note
    • Abstract: The following symposium emerged from an Author Meets Critics panel at the 2018 meeting of the American Political Science Association in Boston, Massachusetts. I am grateful to those of Fishkin’s original interlocutors who revised their papers for submission, review, and publication in The Good Society: Simone Chambers, Cristina Lafont, Lawrence Lessig, Jane Mansbridge, and Mark Warren. I also want to thank Kimmo Grönlund, Sanford Levinson, and Yves Sintomer for responding with such enthusiasm and care to my requests for additional perspectives. And of course, I thank Jim Fishkin for the time and care he took in responding to his colleagues.All unattributed parenthetical citations in the text below refer to James S. ... Read More

  • Overview and Context
    • Abstract: Fishkin lists four criteria for popular control of government: inclusion, choice, deliberation, and impact (12–13). Inclusion means that all adult citizens have equal opportunity to participate. Choice means the alternatives for public decision need to be significantly different and realistically available. Deliberation requires that people are encouraged and empowered to think critically about competing alternatives. Finally, impact means that the people’s deliberative choices direct or constrain official decisions or policies. Overall, Fishkin’s book provides an impressive synthesis of his theoretical work on deliberative democracy and the model for public deliberation he has developed and implemented through ... Read More

  • Deliberative Polling Comes of Age
    • Abstract: With James Fishkin’s new book, Democracy When the People Are Thinking, Deliberative Polling has come of age.1 To the best of our current knowledge as reported in this book, Deliberative Polls and other well-structured randomized mini-publics are good both for the citizens who participate in them and for reasonable decisions. If these two features of Deliberative Polls continue to hold, it would probably benefit democracy if Deliberative Polling or similarly structured mini-publics became more embedded in the policy processes of democratic states. By “embedded,” I mean legally required at certain points in the democratic process and given deciding power at certain points in that process. Yet the more Deliberative ... Read More

  • Deliberative Democracy and the Problem of the Second Best
    • Abstract: With the right design, the people can speak for themselves.In Democracy When the People Are Thinking, James Fishkin offers a wholehearted defense of the possibilities of realizing the democratic ideal of self- government within contemporary societies. Although the book is remarkably honest in its assessment of current democratic deficits it resists fatalism with respect to our chances of overcoming such deficits. To the contrary, this is the book of a convinced deliberative democrat who is willing to keep up the fight for democracy with the help of political imagination and institutional innovation. At a time when books on the topic carry such uplifting titles as How Democracies Die, Post-Democracy or Against ... Read More

  • Democracy in the Open
    • Abstract: Deliberative democracy, both as an empirical research agenda and a normative theory, has developed along two parallel tracks. On one track, we see research that centers on what James Fishkin calls “deliberating microcosms” (for example, 70–71). These are designed settings that bring citizens together as a subset of a larger public (hence also often called “mini- publics”) on a face-to-face basis to discuss and sometimes decide upon public matters. The Deliberative Poll is one such microcosm and James Fishkin its leading theorist and practitioner. No one has done more than he to raise the profile and develop this branch of deliberative democracy. Along the other track, we find scholars and researchers investigating ... Read More

  • Deliberative Polls and the Systemic Democratization of Democracy
    • Abstract: Both scholars and practitioners must recognize the importance of James Fishkin’s contribution to democratic innovation. He has invented and defended theoretically one of the first forms of randomly selected mini-publics, the Deliberative Poll. This device partly differs from other mini-publics. Compared to citizen juries or consensus conferences, it costs much more and, because it is “only” a sophisticated poll, its coupling with the decision-making process is even weaker—other mini-publics of the first generation produce at least a formal advice to the public authority. However, the Deliberative Poll has two main advantages: its size is much larger than that of citizen juries, and therefore it is more ... Read More

  • Deliberative Polling and the Democratic Innovations Agenda
    • Abstract: James Fishkin’s Democracy When the People Are Thinking (2018) is a comprehensive account of why Deliberative Polling is now the gold standard for its type of democratic innovation. Deliberative Polling is a species of the broader genus of deliberative mini-publics: political bodies comprised of demographically representative samples so they are “mini” versions of a relevant public, and tasked with learning and deliberating about an issue of public concern. The result is, typically, a survey (or sometimes a report) that reflects what the body prefers once they are informed and have thought about it: that is, democracy “when the people are thinking.”There is a lot to like in this book. Importantly, it places ... Read More

  • Rendering Sensible Salient
    • Abstract: It is now twenty years since I published my first book, Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace.1 That book, like practically every other book of mine since,2 offered James Fishkin’s idea of Deliberative Polling as a promising way out of the crisis of democracy that I believed the Internet would trigger. Not everyone was convinced the Internet would trigger a crisis of democracy. (The New York Times review charged me with “play[ing] digital Cassandra” but insisted I had not “offer[ed] much proof that a Soviet-style loss of privacy and freedom is on its way.”3) And though I wasn’t certain myself how this critical question would be forced into the foreground, I was certain that societies don’t survive such fundamental ...

  • James Fishkin’s Unconventional Challenge to Thinking about Elections
           and Representation
    • Abstract: James Fishkin’s Democracy When the People Are Thinking: Revitalizing Our Politics Through Public Deliberation is a genuinely important book, meriting wide attention (and not only from academics). It is especially timely when there is plausible concern that the international movement toward democratic forms of governance that characterized the past four decades or so is in abeyance. I am the co-editor, with Mark Tushnet and Mark Graber, of a recent book, Constitutional Democracy in Crisis' (2018), in which some forty-two authors of thirty-eight essays offer answers to the question posed by the title. A few are relatively optimistic, viewing the developments in such countries as Poland and Hungary, not to mention ... Read More

  • Response to Critics: Toward the Reform of Actually Existing Democracies
    • Abstract: This symposium is an extraordinary collection of thoughtful perspectives on the fundamentals of deliberative democracy and my own efforts to understand and secure them in real-world settings. I am delighted that my book could provide an occasion for bringing such a group together. While I cannot hope, in a brief space, to deal with all their comments and questions. I will try and suggest lines of response. Hopefully, this can spark a continuing dialogue.Grönlund offers an admirably lucid summary of my basic argument about deliberation and democratic control. As he recognizes, the ultimate purposes of Deliberative Polling (DP) are two. One is to demonstrate that “the people” can rule, in a meaningful sense and in ... Read More
