On the right to vote

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations

Description

At the core of some forms of democracy we find everybody's right to vote.
Other forms of democracy, at odds with the aforementioned, are based on a
deliberative ideal which implies informed voters: "How can we allow the uninformed to participate in the democratic process?" I want to present a
naturalistic approach relying on scientific realism and Darwinian ethics under
the "free-mind" assumption and see how far this can take us in terms of
understanding whether those who are against "un-informed" voting have a
case or not
