Inclusive Political Communication

Show Summary Details


Theories of deliberative democracy presume too narrow an understanding of political communication. Several forms of communication additional to argument are important for political debate, especially between members of more dominant and more marginalized groups. Greeting, rhetoric, and narrative each have important functions for public acknowledgement of interlocutors and communication when premises are not shared.

Keywords: argument; deliberative democracy; greeting; marginalized groups; narrative; political communication; public acknowledgement; rhetoric
