In “Deweyan Democracy, Robert Talisse, and the Fact of Reasonable Pluralism,” Joshua Forstenzer defends Deweyan democracy against my argument that it fails an intuitive test for political legitimacy proposed by John Rawls. In this brief reply, I argue that although Forstenzer offers an attractive interpretation of Deweyan democracy, his defense nonetheless does not succeed, but arguably exacerbates the original difficulty.
