Abstract


The paper on the paradoxes of democracy adresses the inversions and contradictions of democratic norms and democratic reality. The main issues examined in the paper are the autonomy of political will, aporia of democratic majority, imunisation of democracy, polarisation of freedom and equality, crisis of representation, inversion of conntent and procedure and the political determinants of democracy. The empirical and political reality of democracy is in opposition to the original meaning of democracy as a norm and a value.


Keywords

democracy, paradox, participation, voting will, majority vote, imunisation of democracy, politics
