Public Discussion and Deliberation in Multicultural Societies

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: multiculturalism; democracy; deliberation; Robert Brandom; inferentialism.

My aim in this paper is to compare traditional multiculturalist political theory with a new paradigm in which the usual strategies for dealing with cultural diversities are replaced by the tools provided by inferential semantics as developed by Robert Brandom. The upshot is the transition from a landscape which is highly demanding with respect to the common assumptions among different views of the world to a dialogical context in which contrasting beliefs can come into light more freely.
