Democratic Authority and Its Limits
Today the question of the moral foundations of democracy is more important then ever. Unless we can answer this question, we will be at a loss to determine whether democracy ought to be promoted throughout the world or not. And we will be at a loss in trying to solve the fundamental challenges that will continue to face democratic societies, such as the role of money in politics. In this book, the author gives a basic philosophical account of those foundations
that helps explain when and why democracy is important and gives us guidance as to how democracies ought to be shaped. It also attempts to explain the moral foundations for limiting the role of
democracy in certain contexts such as the violation of democratic and liberal rights and the creation of persistent and marginalized minorities.
