Critique of Liberal Parliamentary Democracy in the Context of Carl Schmitt
In The Concept of Political, Schmitt conceptualized his method as examining: “the questions re-suggested each time by new and complicated situations without missing the phenomena within their criteria” (Schmitt, 2014b: 47). He also criticizes rationalism, the dominant paradigm of the Enlightenment. Schmitt presents Marquis de Condorcet as the typical enlightened radical who claims that each concrete thing is the implication of a single general law, and that it is inevitable to transform the absolute rationalism into a dictatorship of the intellect. Instead of comprehending phenomena in their reality, Concordet tried to dictate outside law and identify the law and reality. On the other hand, the dominant paradigm of the Enlightenment was not limited to absolute rationalism. According to the scholars who defend relative rationalism against absolute rationalism, reality appears with public debate in the parliament (Schmitt, 2014a: 71–72). In addition to rationalism, Schmitt claims that technique is one of the phenomena that should be questioned in the context of Enlightenment political relationships.
