The Federalist–Anti-Federalist exchange was remarkable if for no other reason than for being the first extended deliberation on the future shape and path of government to take place in public newspapers. Moreover, although by-and-large penned by political élites, the newspaper articles that constituted this exchange were frequently written under noms de plume that suggested a more common origin (for example, ‘Publius’, ‘The Federal Farmer’). In this exchange, both sides commented with pride on the presumptiveness of the ordinary American citizen’s willingness to proffer political insight.

The institutional epistemology employed by a jury is essentially conventionalist, in the sense that it holds simple consensus as the defining feature of institutional truth (see Reichenbach 1938). Insofar as a jury is concerned, a claim becomes ‘true’ simply by virtue of the fact that a certain portion of that jury accepts it as true. The reasoning behind the decision is largely irrelevant, as is the possibility that that truth might lie in direct contradiction of other truths found by that same jury (Abraham 2001).

This is clearly not the case. The different institutional epistemologies of laboratories and of juries have caused each to assume a distinct organisational structure and these structures give very different shapes to their respective decisionmaking patterns. In order to activate its democratic, conventionalist function, service on a jury is determined largely by lottery (Abramson 1994). At the same time, however, the conventionalist nature of a jury decision renders the process by which that decision is made inherently opaque—a jury does not articulate the reasoning that underlies its determination—which, in turn, gives rise to the possibility that some jury decisions could be founded on unfair or unjust biases (Harvard Law Review 1997).
