This is the first investigation into the historical origins of the different traditions of decision making, Counsel, Majority and Consensus. The study was motivated by the conviction that rival traditions will work better together if they understand the ethical and historical bases of the decision making procedures used in each tradition. This is an important issue for the entire Left.

Andy Blunden is a Melbourne writer, secretary of the Marxists Internet Archive, perhaps best known for his writings on Hegel and the Soviet Psychologist Lev Vygotsky.
