E. Education; Philosophy of Deliberative Democracy > Areteic Quote of the Day: Colin Farrelly

"By habituating critical, curious and active thinking, the citizens of democracy are better able to resist the pitfalls of the availability heuristic, pressures of group polarization and to recognize reliable authority. This latter point takes us to the virtue-epistemological account of democratic authority." Colin Farrelly, "Virtue Epistemology and the 'Epistemic Fitness' of Democracy"
