First, it enables the complex and remote theorizing of the expert in a special science to communicate with persons who are not at all experts. The economist can explain much of what they understand to the policy analyst.
So the purpose of democratic discussion is epistemic and practical, it is to uncover facts about interests and equality and how best to pursue them for the purpose of making good collective decisions. The contents of democratic deliberation concern first, the interests of persons; second, the just way of accommodating the interests of persons; third, the means for advancing the interests of persons; and fourth, the consequences of these activities. Broadly speaking, then, democratic deliberation concerns the aims the society ought to pursue and the means and consequences of pursuing those aims.

But it poses a very useful challenge to the conception of rational deliberation in a democracy that I favour, which is centrally focused on making law and policy depend on the best available understanding of the social and political system. In this chapter I want to bring together some ideas that may serve as the beginning of an answer to this kind of challenge.
