Schrödinger’s Democracy

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


In this final chapter we zoom out from the material introduced in Chapters 1 to 3. The argument that basic democracy is not a human invention is first offered. We then move to answer a number of questions raised throughout the book: ‘where did democracy come from?’, ‘how did its complexity arise?’ and ‘what, in the end, is democratic?’ These are our main questions. It is a look to the future. It is a critical consideration of what the theory of evolutionary basic democracy and its model can bring to politics and society.
