Abstract

This text aims to address the problem of the political vacuum in a Europe in crisis. It starts from the ideological assumptions that underlie political modernity and its aporias, seeing in some of them absolute impossibilities that do not allow the fulfilment of others. Thus, starting from critical diagnoses, on a political-philosophical basis, it examines some solutions coming from the thought of Habermas, leaving aside institutionalist and functionalist explanations, rather opting for a normative analysis.

Resumen

Este texto pretende abordar el problema del vacío político en una Europa en crisis. Parte de los supuestos ideológicos que subyacen a la modernidad política y sus aporías, viendo en algunos de ellos imposibilidades absolutas que no permiten cumplir otros. Así, partiendo de diagnósticos críticos, sobre una base político-filosófica, y ético-política, examina algunas soluciones que provienen del pensamiento de Habermas, dejando de lado las explicaciones institucionalistas y funcionalistas, pronunciándose más bien por un análisis normativo.
