MENDONCA, Ricardo Fabrino. Reconhecimento e (qual?) deliberação. Opin. Publica [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.1, pp.206-227. ISSN 0104-6276.

This paper aims at outlining a concept of deliberation compatible with the theory of recognition. Despite fostering different bodies of knowledge, these two theoretical perspectives emphasize the emancipatory potential of intersubjective communication. In order to suggest a joint approach, the article challenges four questions that seem to indicate incompatibilities between recognition and deliberation. The paper advocates a deliberative approach marked by: 1) a non-altruist conception of reciprocity; 2) a focus on meta-consensus; 3) a non-cognitive understanding of communicative forms; 4) a broad comprehension of deliberative processes; and 5) an understanding about the importance of civil society associations.

Keywords : public deliberation; recognition; discursive democracy; social struggles.
