Title: Sandra Field, Yale-NUS
Democratic theory often makes appeal to the will of the people. But what  
exactly is this will? Individual humans in a society each have their own  
will; how and under what conditions can the multiple individual wills be  
combined to form a single collective will? In this paper, I interrogate the  
answer to these questions provided by Thomas Hobbes. Hobbes is a  
polemically anti-democratic thinker, but nonetheless I will argue that  
there are lessons in his analysis for contemporary democratic theory.  
First, a caution for those wishing to claim to speak in the voice of the  
people; and second, a caution for those hoping to find a spontaneous  
democratic tendency in the power of the multitude.
When: Wed 29 Apr 2015 13:00 - 14:30 Eastern Time - Melbourne, Sydney
