Thinking About Democracy
How has democracy been understood historically, and what does it mean to us today? What does it mean to be a (small d) democrat? A recent volume of essays explores the concept and the politics of this idea we often take for granted -- Democracy in What State? -- and in this conversation, the Old Mole's Joe Clement and his guest Adam Kotsko, a blogger on political theory lead us through some of the essays and the ideas they explore. Kotsko's review of the book is here.
