    On the Nature of Social and Institutional Reality.Eerik Lagerspetz - 2003 - Sophi.

    Wisdom and Numbers.Eerik Lagerspetz - 2010 - Social Science Information 49 (1):29-59.
    There is a permanent tension between the requirements of substantive goodness or wisdom and those of formal legitimacy in public decision-making. This article charts the various attempts to reconcile the two requirements within decision rules. First, the history of decision rules from medieval times to the 19th century is briefly reviewed. Second, it is shown that the most popular contemporary attempt to justify a decision principle in epistemic terms, based on Condorcet’s famous Jury Theorem, does not actually support democracy. Finally, (...)

    Ad Hominem Arguments in Practical Argumentation.Eerik Lagerspetz - 1995 - Argumentation 9 (2):363-370.
    This paper is ultimately about the nature of argumentation in general and about the nature of practical argumentation in particular. (Practical argumentation is the form of argumentation which aims at answering the question: ‘What is to be done?’) The approach adopted here is an indirect one. I analyze one traditional form of argumentive fallacyargumentum ad hominem and try to show that in some argumentative situations it is an intuitively legitimate move. These intuitions can be explained if we accept that practical (...)

  7. Analytical Philosophy of Institutions.Eerik Lagerspetz - 2003 - Poznan Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities 80 (1):465-488.
    Finland is internationally known as one of the leading centers of twentieth century analytic philosophy. This volume offers for the first time an overall survey of the Finnish analytic school. The rise of this trend is illustrated by original articles of Edward Westermarck, Eino Kaila, Georg Henrik von Wright, and Jaakko Hintikka. Contributions of Finnish philosophers are then systematically discussed in the fields of logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, history of philosophy, ethics and social philosophy. Metaphilosophical reflections on (...)

    Democracy and the All-Affected Principle.Eerik Lagerspetz - 2015 - Res Cogitans 10 (1).
    The All-Affected Principle has an important status in recent theoretical discussions on democracy. According to the principle, all who are affected by a decision should have a right to participate into making it. The principle is supposed to ground the right or optimal boundaries of democratic decision-making units. This paper is basically a critique of the principle. In the first parts of the paper, the All-Affected Principle is distinguished from some related principles. However, even a more precise version of the (...)

    The theory presented in John Searle's "The Construction of Social Reality" has a lot in common with the conventionalist view of institutions. Conventionalism, however, can explain how there can be institutional facts without pre-existing rules, and why people comply with institutional rules.

    Kelsen on Democracy and Majority Decision.Eerik Lagerspetz - 2017 - Latest Issue of Archiv Fuer Rechts Und Sozialphilosphie 103 (2):155-179.
    This paper explicates some aspects of Hans Kelsen’s defence of democracy. Kelsen’s aim was to formulate a realistic normative alternative to the democratic ideal derived from Rousseau. He provided two, independent arguments for majoritarian democracy. First, the validity of majority principle could be derived from epistemological relativism. Second, majority principle maximized individual liberty. The latter argument is based on Kelsen’s own definition of liberty as a correspondence between an individual will and the ruling norms. This argument could be interpreted as (...)
