    schema:description ""Frohock makes a provocative argument: The effects of divisive beliefs can be mitigated with a version of public reason defined as mediated speech acts. These acts are dialogues on the model of a guided conversation in which collective terms dominate simple merit adjudication. This type of public reasoning requires a survey of considerations beyond the merits of the case at hand and opens public reason to the more general needs of the political society."--Jacket."@en ;
