And they exhibit a minimalist approach to democratic theory that is well
expressed by Ian Shapiro's notion of democracy as “limiting domination.” For
Shapiro, “Schumpeterian competition in public institutions is desirable not for its
own sake but rather as the best available mechanism . . . to limiting domination” (
2003, 75). While I agree that self-interest can be a demo​cratically valuable
motivation, and that democracy should work against domination, an aggregative

Thus, already some time ago, in order to counteract the neutralization and trivi-
alization of democracy, qualifiers were chosen to allow it to retrieve its difference,
its separateness from the phenomena of domination trying to hide behind its
name. Among the many qualifiers proposed, Claude Lefort's “savage democracy
stands out, along with radical democracy. In any case, if left undelineated,
democracy would risk losing any identifiable features, and would be swept away
into the ...

With regard to citizenship, however, universities not only help to create citizens
through teaching students; they also, through the academic freedom of faculty
staff, help to lead political debate in new, or old and forgotten, directions. The
autonomy of the modern university is rooted, like the idea of the active citizen, in
the protection of democracy against the threat of domination. The academic
freedoms of scholars and universities guard against political repression for all
citizens, not only ...

The question of who builds the transmission system for the Colorado River
storage project involves the broad question of whether every preference
customer has unlimited access, unhampered by complex contractual agreements
, to the power made possible by a large Federal investment. Only in this way can
we protect our democracy against domination by an all- embracing corporate
giant power monopoly and protect our national standard and policy of
competitive free enterprise.

From the standpoint of situated knowledge, strong objectivity— reliable, partially
shareable, trope-laced, worldly, accountable, noninnocent, knowledge— can be
a fragile human achievement. (1997, 137-138) Part of a barely possible world
she yearns for, this knowledge would be relevant for what she calls worldly

degeneration into something less than democracy and against domination of
minorities. • A new South African system should have the widest possible support
from the entire South African population. It should therefore be the result of
extensive talks and negotiations between South African leaders. Hence the
heavy emphasis ...
