This essay examines the theoretical value of two pragmatic theories for the study of public participation, those of Habermas and of Boltanski and Thevenot, and then places these findings into the context of the systems sociology of Luhmann. The theoretical structure that emerges can be applied in analyzing social actors' constructions of public participation. Such constructions, along with their interactions and alignments, are taken to be pivotal, though neglected, components of participatory innovation. The essay offers a cognitive sociological methodology for analyzing these constructions and briefly considers its value for comparative research.
