Democracia e participação política no novo republicanismo: um estudo sobre o pensamento de Philip Pettit

by Ganacim Granado, Maria Lígia

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis starts with the confirmation of existence of an ample debate involving the republicanism theme. Although this tradition is approached from several poins-of-view and is not characterized by a single group of ideas, we can detach Philip Pettit as the central figural for this republican revival. According to Pettit, the republicanism is able to give a new focus to the traditional distinction between positive and negative freedom, leaving space for a third freedom conception: freedom as non-domination. Understanding freedom as non-domination and putting this conception as the plank for the Republican state, Pettit starts to explore the democracy from the angle of contestability and tracks the political participation that meets this way to see democracy. The main goal of this work is to understand what is the relationship between republican freedom and political participation in Philip Pettit´s political theory.
