Nowadays Arendt´s thought is a fundamental criterion in what refers to politics and her writing confirms her effort to understand reality. Totalitarianism is the framework of reference for the reflections of the Jewish-German philosopher. Nevertheless, her proposals vindicate politics if we understand it as agreements, as beginnings where speech an...

This article proposes to reconsider the feasibility of overcoming violent situations. Situations in which reality imposes itself in an indefectible and aggressive manner and in which it is hard to generate spaces of justice, since in them, social inequality and marginalization prevail. The persistence of injustice is the breeding ground for violenc...

Esta visión se compl...

Article
This article analyzes the possibility of the construction of peace having the violent reality we live in as a starting point and searching possible ways in which such reality can be transcended and transformed. This opens channels which disrupt the defense of such violence as an indisputable reality, whose forms have been invisible, legitimized and...

Violence constitutes an important element of reflection for political philosophy. Two proposed theories of violence are discussed here. One takes violence to be the condition of politics. This is Carl Schmitt's proposal. He says that politics is always conflictive: political space is a battle camp, a confrontational and fighting place. That is why...

Este ensayo pretende mostrar los aportes que en torno a la diversidad cultural llevó a cabo G. B. Vico. El método defendido por el filósofo napolitano parte de la categoría hermenéutica de la fantasía que, en conjunción con el sentido común, posibilitan una relación comprensiva con los demás. Lo realizado por unos seres humanos puede ser entendido...

Thinking and culture are linked intimately in Arendt’s theory because they are both in the public sphere. The absence of thinking makes the agents acting in a banal way. Thinking guides to exchange different opinions through constructed language by various speakers. This shows the necessary plurality required in the politic and cultural space, that...

The relevance of a philosophical understanding of peace is, that it provides critical demands to transform violent societies, such as those we live in, in situations of peace, as something required and desirable, forming - by this means- an ethical and social imperative of contemporaneity. Thus, in this project, we argue the reasons why peace is assumed as a moral ideal, and from there, to raise the ethical foundations on which this imperative rests.
