Abstract

Joshua A. Miller and Steven Douglas Maloney growing requirements of predictive inquiry necessitated by the state's exclusive claim to protect the health, safety, and wel--Theodore Lowi fare of its citizens. We agree that a fair procedure is insufficient if it is not also likely to produce good policy: "it must count Good government must balance demands of legitimacy in favor of a social decision procedure that it tends to produce with those of accurate inquiry about the common good. David the better decision."2 Still, a procedure that does this must Estlund's work on epistemic proceduralism, culminating (to successfully collect epistemically reliable evaluations of facts this point) with Democratic Authority, demands theories of and norms. A functioning democracy must not only be able democratic legitimacy respect this balance. Estlund compels to determine basic fact-finding (that a flood or financial his reader to doubt that either correctness theories or pure procollapse is occurring or has occurred) and norm-discovery (to cedural democracy adequately manage this balance. Estlund proclaim in retrospect that it ought to have been prevented.) A moves the conversation on deliberative democracy dramatically state must also prevent and prepare for future risks, to preserve forward by pushing all parties
