Democratic Legitimacy by Fabienne Peter

Book Description

This book offers a systematic treatment of the requirements of democratic legitimacy. It argues that democratic procedures are essential for political legitimacy because of the need to respect value pluralism and because of the learning process that democratic decision-making enables. It proposes a framework for distinguishing among the different ways in which the requirements of democratic legitimacy have been interpreted. Peter then uses this framework to identify and defend what appears as the most plausible conception of democratic legitimacy. According to this conception, democratic legitimacy requires that the decision-making process satisfies certain conditions of political and epistemic fairness.

Rationality and Commitment by Fabienne Peter Rationality and Commitment, Hardback (December 2007)

Thirteen leading philosophers and economists discuss the Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen's trenchant critique of rational choice theory, and propose their own answers to the question of how to account for the rationality of committed action. The volume concludes with a specially-written reply by Sen.

Public Health, Ethics, and Equity by Fabienne Peter Public Health, Ethics, and Equity, Paperback (January 2006)

Average overall health status has increased worldwide, but it is clear that this achievement has not been equally distributed. Inequities in health have denied many people equality of opportunity. This book builds an interdisciplinary understanding of health equity with contributions from philosophers, anthropologists, economists, and others.
