Abstract

Established institutions and policies of dealing with religious diversity in liberal democratic states are increasingly under pressure. Practical politics and political theory is caught in a trap between a fully secularized state (strict separation of state and politics from completely privatized religions based on an idealized version of American denominationalism or French republicanism) and neo-corporatist or 'pillarized' regimes of selective cooperation between states and organized religions. The book offers an original, comprehensive conceptual, theoretical and practical approach to problems of governance of religious diversity from a multi-disciplinary perspective combining moral and political philosophy, constitutional law, history, sociology and anthropology of religions and comparative institutionalism. Proposals of associative democracy - a moderately libertarian, flexible version of democratic institutional pluralism - are introduced and scrutinized whether they can serve as as plausible third way overcoming the inherent deficiencies of the predominant models in theory and practice.

Abstract

Der Poststrukturalismus dekonstruiert liberal-demokratische Begriffe und lehnt Letztbegründungen für normative Ordnungen ab. Kritiker werfen ihm daher eine Unvereinbarkeit mit einer demokratischen Haltung vor. Derrida, Butler, Laclau und Mouffe vertreten dennoch eine zukünftige und radikale Demokratie. Wie ist dieser "ethical turn" zu beurteilen? Wie gelangen die Wissenschaftler von einer behaupteten Grundlosigkeit zu Gründen für die Demokratie? Luzia Sievi liefert eine detaillierte Analyse sowohl zu den Kritiken an der Demokratie als auch zu den Demokratieentwürfen der genannten Denker - und zeigt, welche Werte und Erkenntnisse bewirken, dass aus scharfen Kritikern starke Verfechter der Demokratie werden.
