Governing The Other: Exploring The Discourse Of Democracy In A Multiverse Of Reason
|Author||Agustin Martin G. Rodriguez|
|Dimension||6 x 9|
This book seeks to understand the meaning of just governance in a nation composed of a multiplicity of communities with competing conceptions of the good. The aim of the work is to use a philosophical lens to explore the possibilities of building a democratic Philippine nation-state, given the diversity of our people. In this series of reflections we will dialogue with the work of political scientists, sociologists, and anthropologists who study Philippine political culture, as well as with advocates of Philippine democratic reform, in order to reflect on their praxis and experience... [and] hope to articulate the principle of governance that may bind us as a people with a shared will for the common good.
