This chapter examines the liberal democratic view of democracy. Under this view, democracy is considered a political method or a certain type of institutional arrangement for arriving at political, legislative, and administrative decisions capable of being an end in itself irrespective of what decisions it produces under give historical conditions. Liberal democracy may also be considered as an attempt to find a democratic implementation of liberalism.
