Title

Second-personal authority and the practice of democracy

Authors
Ottonelli, Valeria
Published in Constellations: An International Journal of Critical And Democratic Theory. 2021
Abstract What makes democracy a particular mode of social and political organization? We argue that the particularity of democracy consists in the logic that characterizes the form of authority this practice constitutes between its participants. This is a logic of mutuality and second-personality, which can be best understood by looking at the relations between democratic decision-makers as democratic voting primitively illustrates.
