Sample text

The design of the new social scheme, the ‘ensemble’, according to Comte, was a purely theoretical project, based upon the general social laws that were the fruit of the ‘science social’. The implementation of this scheme was considered an afterthought by Comte; as merely a matter of ‘details’ that followed seamlessly from the theoretical scheme, and that belonged to the realm of practical man. ‘The labor of social reorganization’, according to Comte, ‘is in essence theoretical’ (Comte in Lenzer 1975: xl, emphasis added).

Outline of the book Part I, ‘Policy conflict and deliberation in the network society’, documents and analyses several experiments with new forms of governance, in Great Britain, California and the Netherlands. In all three cases new forms of policy deliberation emerged, next to or in between existing institutional arrangements. Apart from documenting the cases, the authors seek to come up with an analytical understanding of the dynamics of conflict resolution and policy deliberation. In the first chapter Judith Innes and David Booher analyse an array of experiments in intergovernmental cooperation and consensus-building processes in the San Francisco Bay area.

The chapter is also effective in rebutting any naive suggestion that we ‘merely’ have to readjust to a ‘new reality’ in which government structures have made way for new flexible forms of governance. Instead, the authors show the tensions and conflicts generated by newer ‘networked’ forms of policymaking and political mobilization, and illustrate how more traditionally organized municipal institutions have to readjust. They emphasize the gradual transformation that takes place, in terms of both new discourses as well as new ways of governing that is the result of such experiments.
