The Critical Consensus Model

The Critical Consensus Model

(p.180) Chapter 8 The Critical Consensus Model
The Scandal of Reason

Albena Azmanova

Columbia University Press

This chapter reconstructs the normative structure of public reason in a way that accommodates the hermeneutic level of phronetic orientation. This allows an alternative interpretation of the communicative turn in political philosophy, thus transforming the discursive normative model into a critical consensus model. The first part of the chapter outlines the normative levels within the critical consensus model and offers an interpretation of the hermeneutic turn within its bounds. The second part addresses changes in the key components of the model of deliberative judgment, such as relations between interests and normative reasons; criteria of normative validity; and conditions and procedures of critical judgment.

Keywords:   public reason, phronetic orientation, political philosophy, normative model, critical consensus model, deliberative judgment
