    spontaneous process is based on one’s perception of that immediate instance versus the deliberative process where there is deliberation regarding behavioral options. Fazio (1990, 1999) argues that attitudes can dictate behavior in a spontaneous manner, without the individual consciously reflecting on the relevant attitude and without the individual’s awareness of the attitude’s influence. Memory automatically activates the attitude upon an immediate encounter with the attitude object, and this attitude will influence how the person interprets the object in the immediate moment. Ultimately, the interpretation of the object will affect the person’s behavioral response. For attitudes that are strong enough to be automatically activated by perception, attitude-relevant behaviors activate unimpeded by controlled, conscious processes. Fazio and his colleagues have researched and documented the many consequences of accessible attitudes that contribute to the attitude-behavior relation. For example, he has shown that strong, accessible attitudes can shift attention (Fazio et al., 1992), bias visual perceptions of an object (Fazio et al., 2000), and influence categorization of the attitude object (Fazio et al., 1997). Additionally, there is a linear…

    that the city-state too cannot remain the same” (1276b). Democracy is among the several different types of constitutions Aristotle recognizes. Democracy is what Aristotle describes as a “deviant constitution.” This type of constitution is deviant because it is for the benefit of the poor, but not for its common profit. Though democracy is the most moderate deviant constitution and arises from polity. City-states in which the poor, or those who do not possess much property, are in authority…

    Margaret Mead said: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” I truly believe in the power of groups, and even better, well informed citizens that can create an impact in society fighting for change and been able to demand quality in their governments.

    The Greeks At The Agora

    Democratic societies, when observed through the lens of deliberation, are reliant upon the exchange of information to reach (something close to) truth. The Greeks at the Agora at Athens regarded deliberative democracy as a means of “weighing” benefit and consequence (Shepard 1935). With such an ideal in mind, one may be lead to look upon the current state of information with favor—after all, the modern individual lives surrounded by information. However, the heightened pool of information and…

    Thirty years since C.E.S. Franks published his authoritative 1987 work The Parliament of Canada, and despite the elevated media profile for would-be parliamentarian reformers and refuseniks after the Lefebvre and McGrath parliamentary reforms, the current Canadian House of Commons committee system remains comparatively understudied to similar Westminster-style democracies. Decades worth of government responses to committee recommendations are largely untouched, even by the Library of…

Recently, however, frustrations with the lack of political participation in modern liberal democracies have contributed to renewed interest in some of Aristotle’s ideas—namely, democratic theory. Throughout chapters 9 to 13 of Book 3 of Politics, Aristotle provides an empirical assessment…

    2A To consider democracy as “government by the people” is a very broad and general definition for the term. In all branches of the government proposed by the Constitution, the officials’ decisions can somehow be traced back to the wishes of the people. However, some branches represent the people much more directly than others. The framers of the Constitution knew that the American people would not accept a monarchy or aristocracy, but they also knew the dangers of complete democracy. Thus, the…

    There are many differing views about democracy, but “currently, there are three prominent streams within pragmatic political philosophy: Deweyan democratic perfectionism, Rortyan ironism, and pragmatist epistemic deliberativism” (Talise 2014 123) that provide for the conception of liberal democracy and its implementation. Though each of these philosophical explanations offer their own unique conception of democracy along with how to fulfill democracy’s enactment, pragmatist epistemic…
