The Democratic Myth.
Wilson, John; Cowell, Barbara
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v17 n1 p111-17 1983
Democracy is a weak and obscure ideal. It is often reasonable to defer to authority, give and take orders, and accept expertise. Pupils must learn to discuss as equals and to give and take orders as superiors and subordinates. Calling the former democratic and the latter authoritarian clarifies nothing. (SR)
