ARTEAGA BOTELLO, Nelson. Lógica de la dominación y potencia social en Michel Maffesoli. Convergencia [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.44, pp.81-101. ISSN 2448-5799.

The present work explores the relationship between the concepts of the logic of domination and social power, between what has been instituted and the institutions, which carry out actions according to the thoughts of Michel Maffesoli; a relationship that becomes fundamental in the work of this sociologist, because it allows the establishment of an analysis framework of the political life of modern societies. From here on, the maffesolian diagnosis of Western contemporary democracies is exposed, as well as his proposal of social organization based on a presumed "anti-moralistic ethics". Finally, based on this reflection by Michel Maffesoli, the limits and aspirations of sociology are explored.

Keywords : logic of domination; social power; democratic implosion; anti-moralistic ethic.
