Beerbohm’s ethics of democracy

By | 2nd February 2016

I have not touched this blog for about five months. Meanwhile, I submitted my thesis, I sat for my viva and got a pass with major corrections, and I also visited some bits of Germany, spent some time in Italy, and started planning on my personal and professional future – but these are stories for another time.

Today, I am just writing for signalling my review of Eric Beerbohm’s In Our Name: The Ethics of Democracy, just published on Plurilogue, an online and open access journal of political and philosophical review.

I quite enjoyed reading it, it is an interesting work on democratic theory, which tries to give some solutions in the field of political ethics and answering questions regarding the moral responsibilities of citizens in a democratic state.
