Formative power of democracy as a synonym for full democracy. Education in democracy and collective life

By Andrés López Bermúdez

Abstract

Se exponen aquí dos posturas antagónicas sobre la naturaleza de la democracia, buscando comprender los obstáculos, contradicciones y retos que hoy enfrenta. Mientras según Norberto Bobbio la democracia adquiere su verdadera naturaleza a través de los procedimientos con los que se expresa, Cornelius Castoriadis sostiene que su esencia reside más allá, que debe ser vista como fenómeno que emana del carácter y la formación de los ciudadanos que la ambicionan como el mejor modo de gobierno. A ellos, según Castoriadis, como sujetos inmersos en un permanente proceso formativo, corresponde la tarea –siempre inacabada– de construir la democracia, en vez de, como afirma Bobbio, a instituciones y leyes.Formative power of democracy as a synonym for full democracy. Education in democracy and collective life, Andrés López Bermúdez. Are discussed here two conflicting views about the nature of democracy, seeking to understand the obstacles, contradictions and challenges facing today. As Norberto Bobbio as democracy takes on its true nature through the procedures with which expresses, Cornelius Castoriadis argues that its essence lies beyond, which must be seen as a phenomenon that emanates from the character and training of citizens that aspire as the best form of government. To them, according to Castoriadis, as subjects engaged in a lifelong learning process, it is always unfinished task-democracy-building, rather than, as claimed by Bobbio, institutions and laws
