Democracy: A Never-Ending Quest

Adam Przeworski

    Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

    Abstract

    Most of my work focused on the functioning and the limits of democracy. I place the evolution of our understanding of this bewildering institution in the context of historical events and consider the challenges posed by its current critics. I also reflect on methods, arguing that game theory is the natural language of the social sciences. These ruminations add up to a research agenda.
