The Sytems Approach and Its Enemies Helps Us Find the Morality of a Revised Democracy
If democracy constitutes the institution of morality in a society, it can only be introduced when peace, agreement and consent prevail.
My hope is that is a review of CWC’ The Systems Approach and Its Enemies will provided the reader with a broader understanding of this great work. Re-interpreting CWCs’ ideas in the context of the search of morality in democracy and the adversarial character of different cultures could further our understanding. I argue that the text is relevant to our present dilemmas and problems.
