From a discourse-ethics perspective, democratic order and discursive practice are closely linked. Correspondingly, the principle of discourse forms the basis for the principle of democracy which is valid “for those action norms that appear in legal form. Such norms can be justified by calling on pragmatic, ethical-political, and moral reasons...” (Habermas 1996, 108) Simultaneously, the principle of discourse is equally fundamental for the principle of universalization of morality which, for K.-O. Apel, is based on the three basic norms of responsibility, justice and solidarity.
Yet, the participation in discursive practices requires certain cognitive and linguistic capacities. Those capacities however differ immensely for each individual. Due to mental disabilities or disorders some individuals have poorly developed or widely lost such capacities. Thus a line could be drawn that excludes all those from the outset who do not at all or only partially possess these rational and linguistic qualities. Since such an exclusion would contradict the discourse-ethical claim to consider all affected human beings directly, the question arises what kind of possibilities a discursive approach can admit for the integration and social participation of human beings who cannot or only partially participate in discourse in the light of its three basic norms without, however, running the risk of deciding falsely on behalf of those human beings with considerable communicative impairments.
The workshop discusses the different potentials and difficulties of discourse-ethical and alternative approaches to justify and enable the inclusion in democratic processes of individuals who cannot participate at all in communicative discourse or only in a reduced manner.
