This chapter examines the communitarian view of democracy. Communitarian democrats agree with the liberal democrats and participationist democrats that participation is valuable. However, in contrast, they also believe that integration into a community is a basic requirement of humanity and that life is meaningfully human only when lived and felt to be lived as part of an organic community. They also believe that community is a necessary condition of meaningful autonomy.

Keywords:   communitarian democracy, political participation, community integration, humanity, autonomy
