On her book Civil Passions: Moral Sentiment and Democratic Deliberation

Cover Interview of June 19, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“The path to justice is lighted by the glow of civil passions.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Democratic deliberation can be both affectively engaged and impartial enough to generate just results.”

On the second:

“The challenge is to civilize the passions that we cannot avoid and that practical reason cannot fully transcend.”
