Teoría de la Participación. Sugerencias analíticas


  • Jose Nácher

    () (. Universitat de València - Estudi Genera, Departamento de Economía Aplicada)


Human groups may be analysed as organisations of networks of relationships between their members. This article proposes an exercise in theoretic speculation about participation and democracy based on the analytic tools of a relational-informational theory the bases of which come from evolutionalism and the Information Economy. This analytical framework may clarify the nature of macro-collective citizenship, micro-formal group of the company and the fabric of the emergent and informal communicative relations of society and the market. As a humanist heuristic which revindicates the resource to literary and philosophic sources of knowledge, work offers alternative explainations to the preference for participative inhibition and concludes that participative democracy only has probabilities if its experimentation offers pleasurely or beauty sensations.
