Institutional Values, or How to Say What Democracy Is

Southwest Philosophy Review 30 (1):235-242 (2014)
Abstract
In this paper, I describe a category of political values that I call “institutional values.” An institutional value is distinct from an ordinary political value like justice by having both descriptive and evaluative components. I defend a method of sorting out correct from incorrect conceptions of an institutional value that relies on two ideas: coherence and verisimilitude
