I am grateful for helpful feedback from J. Bohman, H. Buchstein, T. Christiano, M. Neblo, and B. Talbott, as well as for interesting questions raised by the audience of a conference on Why not Epistocracy? Political legitimacy and “the fact of expertise,” at the University of Oslo in 2012 and a symposium on The Practice of Deliberative Democracy, at the 2011 APA Central Division Meeting, where I presented earlier versions of this article. Thanks are also due to Robert Goodin and the anonymous reviewers of the Journal of Political Philosophy.
