Quiénes somos y sobre qué vamos a trabajar: Yves Sintomer


Yves Sintomer es uno de los grandes estudiosos sobre la democracia participativa en general y el sorteo en particular. Sin sus grandes estudios sobre los fundamentos filosóficos, las raíces históricas y las aplicaciones concretas, el sorteo tendría un lugar inferior en la discusión intelectual y político. Dentro de nuestro equipo de trabajo se dedicará a evaluar qué puede rescatarse del sorteo. Éste fue tanto un mecanismo de designación de cargos como un modo de compartirlos y permitir que accedieran los más. Todo ello dentro de culturas políticas -en las más de 1.000 polis democráticas en Grecia, en la Florencia del final de la Edad Media y el Renacimiento- en las que cuales la realización personal era indisociable de la participación política. ¿Puede seguir asumiéndose, con el sorteo y la rotación, que la democracia, según Aristóteles, consiste en el aprendizaje de ser gobernado, ejerciendo el gobierno?  ¿Debe pensarse, por el contrario, que el sorteo debe centrarse en la producción de asambleas deliberativas de calidad? Tal será el centro de la aportación de Yves Sintomer a nuestro proyecto: "La herencia del sorteo político ateniense: democracia radical o democracia deliberativa?"
