Talk: New limits of democracy
Michel Wieviorka / France
Until the mid-1980s, democracy did not seem to concern philosophical reflection in the field of political sociology. It was enough to think of it as the regime opposed to communism and dictatorship. Since then, critical thinking has developed in several ways, giving the impression of some discomfort when it comes to thinking about the solution to the great contemporary challenges, for example: social difficulties, injustice, inequalities, crisis of Political and party representation, institutional deficiencies and the treatment of culturally or religious orders, violence, etc.
