Summary
"This volume explores the relationship between knowledge and democracy. Do they support each other, do they mutually depend on each other, or are they perhaps even in conflict with each other? Does knowledge increase the freedom to act? If additional knowledge contributes to individual and social well-being, does it also enhance freedoms? Knowledge and Democracy focuses on the interpenetration of knowledge, freedom and democracy, and does so from various perspectives, theoretical as well as practical. This volume will attract the interest of political scientists, sociologists, economists, and students within various disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
