Six Characters in Search of Democracy
In the opening debate, the four models of democracy – central to the main text of the book – are discussed by ‘six characters in search of democracy’. The six, reunited former members of a Politics and Democracy reading group, personify different positions in the general debate about democracy, and in plain language they express different preferences regarding (in)direct democracy as well as (non‐)majoritarian democracy. At some point during their talks, one of them summarizes the various positions, along lines similar to the ones that are central to this book.
