Seminar on Ivan Mladenović’s book Public Reason and Deliberative Democracy

Ivan Mladenović’s book Public Reason and Deliberative Democracy (Belgrade: Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory, 2019) focuses on the question how is it possible to reach an agreement in a democratic society given the plurality of interests, beliefs and comprehensive doctrines. The author argues that public reason and deliberative democracy are crucially important for answering that question.
