Onore democratico

2016 - Franco Angeli

7-18 p.

  • Democratic honor, honor and democracy; have these two terms something in common except their mutual exclusion? We generally assume that where honor reigns there is no democracy, and vice-versa. What is honor after all, given that we know well what democracy is? By referring to obsolete notions such as word of honor, promise, commitment, honesty, I intend to recast the understanding of honor by releasing it from archaic frills (honor killings, duel of honor, chastity as a form of female 'honor') in order to present it as a democratic virtue, as an honor of honest people.
