DOES CONTEMPORARY DEMOCRACY DEMANDS AGONISM OR DELIBERATION?

Contemporary democratic societies are characterized by two inescapable empirical phenomena: 1) The existence of deep, persistent and ineradicable political disagreements within each democratic society; 2) the need for political action courses common to all citizens (Waldron, 2005: 18). The aggregati...

Contemporary democratic societies are characterized by two inescapable empirical phenomena: 1) The existence of deep, persistent and ineradicable political disagreements within each democratic society; 2) the need for political action courses common to all citizens (Waldron, 2005: 18). The aggregative democratic conception, receipted by most political constitutions, has shown some weaknesses to address this reality. In response, two rival democratic conceptions have emerged, namely: a) agonistic-pluralist; and b) deliberative-republican. This article aims to: 1) reconstruct the conceptual and normative assumptions of these two conceptions; 2) contrast them; and 3) outline arguments for a deliberative-republican democratic conception. The methodology used is the analytical political philosophy, namely: a) rational reconstruction of concepts; and b) reflective equilibrium. The present work aims to contribute to the ongoing debate about which is the best normative conception of democracy to adopt in non ideal contemporary normative conditions. Las sociedades democráticas contemporáneas se caracterizan por dos fenómenos empíricos ineludibles: 1) La existencia de profundos, persistentes e inerradicables desacuerdos políticos al interior de cada sociedad democrática; 2) la necesidad de adoptar cursos de acción política comunes a todos los ciudadanos (Waldron, 2005: 18). La concepción democrática agregacionista, receptada por la mayoría de las constituciones políticas, ha mostrado ciertas deficiencias para atender a esta realidad. En respuesta, han surgido dos concepciones democráticas rivales, a saber: a) agonal-pluralista; y b) deliberativa-republicana. Este artículo tendrá por objetivos: 1) reconstruir los presupuestos conceptuales y normativos de estas dos concepciones; 2) contrastarlas; y 3) esbozar argumentos en defensa de una concepción democrática deliberativa-republicana. Para ello, la metodología a emplear será la de la filosofía política analítica, a saber: a) la reconstrucción racional de conceptos; y b) el equilibrio reflexivo. El presente trabajo pretende contribuir al debate actual acerca de cuál es la mejor concepción normativa de democracia a adoptar en las condiciones normativas no ideales contemporáneas.   Centro de Investigaciones y Estudios sobre Cultura y Sociedad 2015-06-30 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion Artículos revisados por pares application/pdf https://revistas.unc.edu.ar/index.php/astrolabio/article/view/10734 Astrolabio; No. 14 (2015): PODER Y ESTADO EN LA TEORÍA SOCIAL CONTEMPORÁNEA; 168- 192 Astrolabio; Núm. 14 (2015): PODER Y ESTADO EN LA TEORÍA SOCIAL CONTEMPORÁNEA; 168- 192 Astrolabio; n. 14 (2015): PODER Y ESTADO EN LA TEORÍA SOCIAL CONTEMPORÁNEA; 168- 192 1668-7515 10.55441/1668.7515.n14 spa https://revistas.unc.edu.ar/index.php/astrolabio/article/view/10734/12038
