Law and Disagreement

Philosophical Review 110 (4):611 (2001)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The most obvious way of settling disagreements peacefully is to take a vote.

Piled on top of all this scorn for legislation comes further scorn from social choice theorists, who insist that majority rule is useless as a means of making decisions.
