MACHADO, Nilson José. A maioria sempre tem razão: ou não. Estud. av. [online]. 2005, vol.19, n.55, pp.271-285. ISSN 0103-4014.

IN THIS ARTICLE, several contexts, scopes and circumstances in which the use of the majority rule seems to be a proper use, in opposition to others in which it makes no sense. The automatic association of majority rule to democratic political systems is certainly inappropriate, because these systems ordinarily aggregate both elections and appointments. The rule also seems improper when it involves questions of science, irreversibility, consciousness and personal integrity. It is a very complex thematic and an attempt in order to undervalue it may drive only to aporias, as suggested by the title of this article.

Palavras-chave : Majority; Democracy; Science; Consciousness; Integrity.
