Is there a sense in which society makes rational decision in a democratic way that is similar to individual rational decision-making? Social choice theory claims that rational social choice is not possible. Or, at least, that if possible, then the social choice must be dictatorial. I shall present a deliberative solution to the social choice problem. This solution is called deliberative, because it is based on the assumptions of deliberative democracy. Da li se moze reci da drustvo demokratskim putem donosi racionalne odluke na nacin na koji to cine individue? Teorija drustvenog izbora kaze da to nije moguce. Ili barem, ako je drustveni izbor racionalan, da mora da bude diktatorski. U ovom radu predlozicemo deliberativno resenje za problem drustvenog izbora. Ovo resenje se naziva deliberativnim zato sto se zasniva na pretpostavkama deliberativne demokratije. PR Projekat Ministarstva nauke Republike Srbije, br. 43007
