This paper aims to clarify the meaning and importance of deliberation in theory of democracy. In particular, it will examine two meanings of deliberation, i.e. deliberation as discussion, and deliberation as reflective rationality. The author maintains that both meanings are of great importance for the theorist of democracy interested in solving the paradoxes of voting-based theories. [Projekat Ministarstva nauke Republike Srbije, br. 43007] Osnovni cilj clanka jeste da se istraze smisao i znacaj deliberacije u teoriji demokratije. Naglasak je stavljen na dva smisla pojma deliberacije koji podrazumevaju javno raspravljanje i refleksivnu racionalnost. Autor smatra da su oba ova znacenja vazna kako bi deliberativna demokratija odgovorila na izazove koje postavljaju teorije demokratije koje se zasnivaju iskljucivo na modelu glasanja.
