Publicity, Deliberation, and Democracy Yet as much as we might insist on a distinction between publicity and democracy, that distinction can get lost: for many, democracy, liberalism, and even republicanism meet and become one on the hallowed ground of the public sphere through rational, public-​ interested deliberation. The reasoning is so powerful that we will pause here to consider the sources of its strength. Ultimately, the Arab republic of arguments is not necessarily a democratic place, and we will see ways in which politics as argument and politics as struggles over policy are not well linked.

In the process, he has come to acknowledge that his conception of politics needs to make concessions to real peoples’ concerns and what they actually say. 6 One often overlooked dimension of Habermas’s focus in his initial book on early modern western Europe is quite relevant to our own inquiry: for all the association of the public sphere with both democracy and liberalism in subsequent writings, the early modern public sphere explored by Habermas was neither fully democratic itself nor did it operate in a broader liberal context.

NOTES 1. Hannah Arendt, The Promise of Politics (New York: Schocken, 2005), 106. 2. The account of an Arab political system that comes closest to (and draws on) Arendt’s presentation of totalitarianism is Samir al-​Khalil, Republic of Fear: The Politics of Modern Iraq (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1989). A more ambivalent use of Arendt in an Arab context can be found in Lisa Wedeen’s Ambiguities of Domination: Politics, Rhetoric, and Symbolism in Contemporary Syria (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1999).
