Disonorare la violenza : la violenza maschile tra reputazione e discredito

2016 - Franco Angeli

80-94 p.

  • The author explores the concept of honor with particular reference to the problem of honor killings and tries to answer two questions, the first theoretical and the second ethical-political. Is the ideal of honor inextricably connected with typical forms of domination and gender violence of patriarchal cultures, or is the concept of honor redeemable and distinguishable from those codes and mentality? In order to contrast the honor-based violence is it preferable to completely break with tradition and the language of honor or is it better to try to challenge from within the logic of honor, through the spread and entrenchment of a new ethos that links the ideal of honor to respect and non-violence, especially in gender relations? [Publisher's Text].
