Abstract

Symposium: Ian Shapiro's Democratic Justice Collective life is not reducible to power relations, but power He attributes to liberalism (unfairly on my view) the mistake of relations suffuse virtually every human interaction. The view focusing exclusively on government tyranny, of perpetuating that domination is the principal source of injustice, and that the the "antipolitical fallacy" that some private spheres are beyond experience of injustice is most often one of arbitrary dominathe reach of politics or, even less plausibly, that they are not tion, guides Ian Shapiro's work. A "democratic way of doing themselves domains of power. The point is to extend vigilance things" is the best if imperfect protection. against domination beyond political institutions to all the areThis starting point sets Shapiro's work apart. His concern nas of power, that is, to all arenas , to every domain of human about political participation is guided less by a regulative norm activity at every stage of the life-cycle: marriage, child-rearing, of political equality or an articulated theory of just outcomes work, death. than by anti-domination.
