Book Review: Siegfried Schrotta (ed.), Systemic Consensus Building (German)

This is an exciting idea based, among other things, on measuring resistance rather than approval to proposals.

Chapter 2 compares this method with the traditional majority principle. Chapter 4 proposes concrete metrics. Chapter 5 reminds me in parts of Design Thinking. Chapter 19 makes reference to Plato's aporia or hopelessness or tension. Chapter 27 has additional very practical ideas.

I can imagine that today there is even more scientific evidence for the effectiveness of this method. For example, Sarah Brosnan's finding that while we have no inborn sense of fairness, we do have an inborn sense of unfairness when we experience it.
