Cidadãos e deliberação coletiva nas ciências sociais



Ciência cidadão, Divisão de trabalho, Deliberação coletiva, Virtude intelectual, Diversidade cognitiva, Ideologia


Argumenta-se que, em certas condições particulares relacionadas ao caráter intelectual dos deliberadores e sua diversidade cognitiva, pequenas equipes de pesquisa que se engajam na deliberação na análise de dados e envolvem cidadãos podem promover melhores resultados epistêmicos do que aquelas equipes que não envolvem cidadãos. Em particular, argumenta-se que certas comunidades dentro das ciências sociais que carecem da diversidade cognitiva relevante entre seus profissionais podem aproveitar a diversidade encontrada na cidadania para aumentar a qualidade epistêmica de suas pesquisas, desde que os cidadãos possuam as virtudes relevantes. .
