Justice is not the only virtue of political institutions; legitimacy is just as important. And it is democracy, not justice, that establishes institutional legitimacy. Or at least this is so, on a republican conception of democracy. Political institutions may be more just and less democratic, less just and more democratic. So which value is the more important? In a political theory addressed to citizens as the makers of institutions, democracy enjoys an important priority.

Philipp Pettit is L.S.Rockefeller University Professor of Politics and Human Values at Princeton University, where he teaches philosophy and political theory. Among his books are The Common Mind  (1996), Republicanism (1997), The Economy of Esteem (2004), with G.Brennan; Made with Words (2008); A Political Philosophy in Public Life, with JL Marti (2010); and Group Agency (2011) with C. List. Common Minds: Themes from the Philosophy of Philip Pettit, ed G.Brennan et al, appeared from OUP in 2007. Professor Pettit is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences as well as of academies in his two countries of citizenship: Ireland and Australia. His book On the People’s Terms is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press. It is based on the 2009 Albertus Magnus Lectures in Cologne, and the 2010 Seeley lectures in Cambridge.
