Acordar la paz en Colombia o la 'cosa misma' de la filosofía

Adolfo Chaparro

Research output: Contribution to journalResearch Articlepeer-review


This article aims to make a philosophical reading of the peace agreements signed between the
Colombian government and the FARC guerrilla. After (i) presenting Derrida’s thesis about the
need to deconstruct the concept of the enemy as the very thing of philosophy, and (ii) attempting
an approach to the concepts of reconcilement and re–evolution in the different fields of the
conflict, then, (iii) I return to the initial thesis in order to suggest exploration routes by way of
theoretical indications on how to re-signify the concept of enemy in terms of a genuine social and
philosophical pluralism.
