Abstract:   (103 Views)
Through deliberative communication we may understand a particular type of communication, performed in the public-democrat space, which implies participation from more people/individuals for the communication act on a certain theme on which polarizations appear, divergent interests, dilemmas, conflicts. The goal of deliberative communication is to make the participants to reach a consensus /a compromise in the process of taking a decision of action. The macro-context of communication comes from the liberties and constraints imposed by the society and state and as a condition of possibility of any type of democracy, the implication of civil society in the process of taking a decision through public deliberations and as a direct consequence, the acceptance of different value systems, equal rights for all the participants in the act of taking a decision, liberty of expression, respecting all human rights. At the strict level of communication, respecting every norm of communication by avoiding ill-minded/manipulative arguments. The elements which define a solution with the intent to be put in practice and the particularization of such a communication in the deliberative process may be reduced to two categories: rational communication and the idea over common good. The purpose of this paper is to reconfigure the structure of the deliberative process, inspired by the classic utilitarianism principles with the intention to prefigure a possible conciliation between the liberty of action and liberty of opinion as long as every individual has the liberty to take action following their own way to obtain their own good, a liberty limited by the interest of others which follow as well their own good. © 2016 The Authors.
