dc.description.abstractThis article argues that the "community of inquiry" notion of the classical pragmatists has much to offer PA theory and practice. The "community of inquiry" is an ideal position from which public administrators can effectively examine how they approach problems, consider data and communicate. Participatory democracy is a vital component of the community of inquiry developed by John Dewey and Jane Addams. The recognition of participatory democracy's place in public administration is underdeveloped. The community of inquiry context provides a useful lens to show how participatory democracy can nurture a creative public service.en_US
