Democracy & argument between Israeli Jews and Palestinians, Prof Donald G. Ellis


Built statistical models

Trust proves critical fr reaching solution, Maoz & Ellis, 2009

Peace education, Just reading the other group's narrative unfreezes the views of participants & less advocate war

Devised a coding scheme

Dugri & Mussyara style of speech

Frame analysis

Semantic classification if the utterances of Israeli & Palestinian arguments

Then put the codes in a matrix & learned patterns, What's the type of response you'll expect aft a certain type, at each group


Difference in argument patterns between Israelites & Palestinians

Contact does moderate Israeli argument tendencies, but does not eliminate it

Online deliberation

Create a Public Sphere

See, Habermas

In Arab revolutions, FaceBook made a difference

Create habits of communication

Enable, Partcipate in other intelligence, Go beyond bounded rationality, Be exposed to new knowledge

There are conditions for this to work, Eg, Equality, Accessibility, Diversity, Ppl from different ethnic groups, opinions &c

Challenge: create a democratic space, not just a commons

Reduced Que environment, Increase the task focus

Distinction between Dialog & Deliberation, Dialog is just for emotional & psychological purposes

Foundational logic

Politics = solve inequality, Material & symbolic resources unequally distributed

Arguments are the process of solving conflicts, Hammering out interest based differences

Discursive Democracy



Habermasian ideal

Mention his book on transformative communication, Three incommensurables .. communities

Arguments need to be justified

Deliberation is error reduction, Not negotiation, Deliberation is epistemic

Not for like-minded groups

"enclave polarization in like minded grous"

Try to solve pragmatic problems - low-level abstraction, Not in the level of religious/scientific reasons
