Democracy, Legality, and Policy

28 09 2011

Tilburg University, The Netherlands

31 May – 1 June 2012



This conference brings together experts from political philosophy, legal philosophy and social epistemology to examine fundamental issues in the theory of democracy. Is there an internal connection between the value of democracy within a group of enquirers and the „objective“ standing of the products of that inquiry? How is the ideal of democratic self-governance connected to the pluralism of moral values? What is the relationship between the normative authority of democracy and of a legal system? How might the emergence of a trans-national legal order alter how we think about constitutional ideas? In what way can formal methods give insight into practical policy issues?


Helen Longino (Stanford), Alexander Somek (Iowa), and Robert Talisse (Vanderbilt)


Stephan Hartmann, Hans Lindahl, Alan Thomas
