Evolutionary Approaches to Politics
Evolutionary approaches to politics are rare. But politics can be analysed in evolutionary terms of variation, selection, imitation or path-dependency, following Schumpeter's vision of "political entrepreneurship" or Hayek's view of democracy as a process of opinion-formation. Democracy can even be regarded a procedure for the discovery and social use of dispersed knowledge and skills with political entrepreneurs' creating attention for new issues. Direct democracy is argued to support this. In addition, inter-jurisdictional competition is argued to introduce valuable forms of parallel learning in politics. Evolutionary concepts can be applied to politics. Copyright 2002 by WWZ and Helbing & Lichtenhahn Verlag AG
