CORDOBA GOMEZ, Luis Antonio. Liberalismo y democracia en la perspectiva de Norberto Bobbio. Convergencia [online]. 2008, vol.15, n.48, pp.29-48. ISSN 2448-5799.

In the present article an analysis is developed, approached from the political philosophy, on the conception the Italian philosopher Norberto Bobbio (1909-2004) outlined about two of the most important political traditions produced by the western culture and which are, without a doubt, pillars upon which modernity has been built: democracy and liberalism. From this perspective approaching and encounter points are identified, the same as the tensions that energize the relationship between democracy and liberalism as well as some contradictions that spur Bobbio's thought.

Keywords : Democracy; liberalism; political liberalism; liberal State; liberal democracy.
