    Cognition in a Hierarchy.Ricardo Blaug - 2007 - Contemporary Political Theory 6 (1):24-44.
    To contribute to the organizational turn in research on participatory democracy, this paper examines the effects of organizational hierarchy on individual thinking. Power corrupts, but neither political scientists nor psychologists can really tell us how.

    _Democracy_ begins with classical statements on the value of democracy and follows with texts defining the concepts of freedom and autonomy, equality, representation, majority rule, markets, multiculturalism, and citizenship. It also covers feminist, conservative, and elitist critiques of democracy and contemporary issues. For this edition, the authors include new sections on the rapidly changing relations among democracy and globalization, the Internet, religion, and violence, providing a valuable introduction to standard articulations of democracy and its current concerns in the modern, interconnected, (...)
