The Spirit of Compromise
- Why Governing Demands It and Campaigning Undermines It
- By: Amy Gutmann, Dennis Thompson
- Narrated by: Teresa DeBerry
- Length: 6 hrs and 14 mins
In The Spirit of Compromise, eminent political thinkers Amy Gutmann and Dennis Thompson connect the rejection of compromise to the domination of campaigning over governing - the permanent campaign - in American democracy today. They show that campaigning for political office calls for a mindset that blocks compromise - standing tenaciously on principle to mobilize voters and mistrusting opponents in order to defeat them. Good government calls for an opposite cluster of attitudes and arguments - the compromising mindset - that inclines politicians to adjust their principles and to respect their opponents.
