摘要:

自1940年代以来,西方公共行政学一直面临着深刻的“身份危机”。沃尔多认为,这种“身份危机”源于传统行政学的反民主特性,其所内含的政治哲学明显有悖于美国传统的政治文化与宪政设计。通过将民主的价值注入公共行政的理论与实践中,沃尔多确立了公共行政学未来发展的议程。这种致思路径对于今天同样面临“身份危机”的中国公共行政学具有极大的警醒意义。

Abstract:

Public administration has been confronted with the crisis of identity since 1940s. To overcome the crisis, Dwight Waldo devoted himself wholeheartedly to reflect on the shortcomings of the orthodox public administration. By focusing on the antidemocratic character of the orthodoxy, Waldo argues that we should establish a democratic public administration and infuse the value of democracy into public administration. The Waldonian approach has great significance to Chinese public administration.

Key words: public administration, the crisis of identity, Waldonian approach
