Title: Denial of the violence: the validity of arendtian political philosophy
Negaciones de la violencia: la vigencia de la filosofía política arendtiana
Publisher: Corporación Universitaria Minuto de Dios - UNIMINUTO
Description: According to the essence of politics, Hannah Arendt has stated a critical thesis which confronts the modern traditional philosophy: the innovation of her thought is based on the idea of politics distant from the relationship between means and ends in which are balanced and identified power, violence, discrimination, among others, but from the vital distinction between the notion of power (with its consensual and communicative character) and the idea of control and violence. The purpose of this article is to give an account of the richness, complexity, and problematic of her thesis about violence. This violence is understood as a denial of politics since it is not a marginal issue but rather a philosophical exercise of great value and undeniable validity for the study of politics and society in the XXI century.
En relación con la esencia de la política, Hannah Arendt ha mantenido una tesis crítica frente a la tradición filosófica moderna: la originalidad de su pensamiento consiste en haber postulado una idea de la política, no a partir de la relación medios/fines —en la que se equilibran e identifican poder, violencia, dominación, entre otros—, sino a partir de una necesaria distinción entre la idea de poder (con su carácter consensual y comunicativo), de la idea de dominio y de violencia. El propósito de este trabajo es dar cuenta de la riqueza, complejidad y problemática contenida en el desarrollo de su tesis sobre la violencia como negación de la política, toda vez que no se trata de una temática marginal, sino más bien de un ejercicio filosófico de gran valía y vigencia indiscutible para el estudio de la política y la sociedad del siglo XXI.
