A Seminar on "The Priority of Democracy" at Crooked Timber

Crooked Timber blog has an interesting seminar on a recent book “The Priority of Democracy, which is written by Jack Knight and James Johnson. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in political economy and/or political science to read the book review. The book is reviewed by the following academics:

·         Chris Ansell – professor of political science at University of California, Berkeley
·         Peter Boettke – professor of philosophy and economics at George Mason University
·         Henry Farrell – associate professor of political science and international affairs at George Washington University
·         Ingrid Robeyns – professor in practical philosophy at Erasmus University Rotterdam
·         Cosma Shalizi – associate professor of statistics at Carnegie Mellon University
·         Melissa Schwartzberg – associate professor and political theorist at Columbia University
·         Adrian Vermeule – professor at Harvard Law School

In the following list are the reviews and comments of the above academics on the book:

·         Chris Ansell“The Political Consequences of Learning”
·         Melissa Schwartzberg “Democratic Legitimacy and Democracy’s Priority”
·         Henry Farrell “Some Microfoundations for Pragmatist Democracy”
·         Cosma Shalizi “Dissent Is the Health of the Democratic State”
·         Adrian Vermeule “Two Risks for Second-Order Democracy”

I’ll update the post if there are any further review posts, comments or conversations on Crooked Timber about “The Priority of Democracy”.
