9780739179383: Democracy as Popular Sovereignty

Although democracy is in principle associated with popular rule, in practice it is best described as rule by elected elites. This form of government is not only wanting from a theoretical point of view, but it also no longer seems to meet the expectations of large segments of the citizenry. This book offers a blueprint for an alternative democratic model, democracy as popular sovereignty. Starting with the idea that the people, generously defined, are sovereign when they rule as equally valuable and fully participating members of a self-governing collectivity, this model tries to describe the constitutional and institutional arrangements necessary to achieve a workable version of this idea in advanced democratic states. This implies among other changes a greater dose of direct democracy, the use of sortition and a different conception of representation. The overall argument developed combines insights, facts, and findings from normative political theory, empirical political science, democracy’s long history as well as from the recent burgeoning literature on participatory and deliberative democracy.

About the Author:

Filimon Peonidis is associate professor of moral and political philosophy and head of the graduate philosophy program at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. His publications in English include Autonomy and Sympathy: A Post-Kantian Moral Image (2005), (co-edited with Nicos Avgelis) Aristotle on Language, Logic and Science (1999) and articles in journals such as Australian Journal of Legal Philosophy, History of European Ideas, History of Political Thought, Journal of Social Philosophy, Journal of Bentham Studies, Journal of Philosophical Research, Journal of Value Inquiry and Law and Philosophy.

Review:

Peonidis's hedgehog-like insistence on the "one big idea" of popular sovereignty is a valuable reminder that democracy's promise is not exhausted today by laudable attempts to make our political landscape more deliberative. Amidst a steady crisis in democratic legitimacy, Peonidis's efforts at reviving the ideal of popular rule could help citizens and policy makers in their efforts to create a more democratic form of life.

                David W. McIvor, Journal of Public Deliberation

50 years after the first wave of publications on the topic, we were still lacking a systematic philosophical and institutional account of participatory democracy. Peonidis’ book fills this gap and does it with great depth and perspicacity.

This book combines erudite knowledge about the classics in democratic thought with a thorough analysis of contemporary literature. And it establishes the philosophical moral grounds of, as well as the basics of the institutional design for, a demanding ideal of direct democracy. Democracy means, for Peonidis, simply popular sovereignty, the government by the people. And this gives him a powerful instrument to criticize the present representative democracies for being too elitist, and therefore insufficiently legitimate. His proposal consists, put in a nutshell, in giving the political power back to the citizens, because they “constitute the ultimate source from which every form of political power exercised within their territory emanates”. (José Luis Martí, professor of law, Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona)
