MARTINEZ HINCAPIE, Carlos Eduardo. Mandela and the historic construction of nonviolence: Other ways of doing and thinking. Polis [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.43, pp.89-110. ISSN 0718-6568.

The proposal of nonviolence is an historical construction, meaning that it is the product of the challenges that we have faced as mankind in the last one-hundred years. It is also a proposal for cultural transformation that intends to explain the deep changes in the ways of interacting among humans and with nature. This article starts placing the imaginaries that still guide the way of doing politics. Thus, we can evidence the need to reach out to new epistemologies that will allow us to tune our perceptions on the changes that are happening. Mandela and his people turned politics into the art of meeting and understanding and not that of confrontation. This text is about evidencing some of the elements that allowed them to overcome the temptation of war and to read them as their contribution to this pathway that is being built currently as a process, which is nonviolence.

Palabras clave : culture; hegemony; micropolitics; macropolitics; outflow lines; nonviolence.
