Abstract

Communicative rationality is a concept in which participants can reach in mutual agreements on factual and normative matters and better argument prevails in a legitimate way to reach consensus. Democratic governance can be ensured properly through communicative rationality in terms of its possibilities as well as limitations. It is often appropriate for complex problem solving as a substitute for instrumental, functional and strategic forms of rationality.

Keywords: communicative rationality, democratic governance, participation
