GIBU SHIMABUKURO, Ricardo. The defense of doxa in the work of Hannah Arendt. Veritas [online]. 2011, n.25, pp. 57-74. ISSN 0718-9273. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-92732011000200004.
If the removal of dialogue and persuasion determine the origin of violence; could not their restoration open the possibility of peaceful coexistence? Doxa, that form of knowledge that philosophy, since its inception, has banished to the realm of illusion; might not be the enabling environment for political dialogue in which interlocutors are open to understanding each other without aiming to impose an absolute truth? The objective of this work will be to consider the role of doxa in the thought of Arendt, within her project to reinterpret the relationship between philosophy and politics.
