SAHUI, Alejandro. Democracy and The Spatial Turn in Political Philosophy. En-clav. pen [online]. 2020, vol.14, n.27, pp.156-182.  Epub 19-Jun-2020. ISSN 2594-1100.

The purpose of this paper is to reflect around the spatial dimension of politics and democracy. The problem is that the dimension of space -the physical places where social and collective life take place and public rights are claimed- have not been given a central stage as a proper subject by political philosophy in normative terms. Since democracy is connected to national state, it is commonly assumed that physical space is uniform and its population homogeneous, as if the same set of procedures and rules were adequate to manage in a neutral way the demands of people and groups in any scenario. This text tries to make visible that the configuration of spaces as places of human experience determines what we can talk about, how to do it, and who can participate in the conversation.

Palabras llave : Democracy; spatial turn; political philosophy; democratization of the State; public space.
