Resumen

CHUAQUI H., Tomás. Locke y la adulación. Rev. cienc. polít. (Santiago) [online]. 2004, vol.24, n.2, pp.183-198. ISSN 0718-090X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-090X2004000200010.

This article verifies the relevance of a specific political vice, namely, flattery, in John Locke's political thought. It is shown that for Locke flattery originates in learned agents whom incite aspirants to political power, appealing to the pride that typically characterizes them. This political vice, therefore, endangers the survival of political regimes of limited and decentralized powers since it incites, by catering to pride, an unchecked desire for power and domination over others. In this way, the importance of citizens' capacity to contain passions and vices, which pertains besides to Locke's moral and educational philosophies, is clarified in view of the construction and maintenance of a limited regime, based on the consent of the governed, and protective of freedom.

Palabras clave : Locke; Adulación; Teoría Política; Liberalismo; Vicio Político.
