FILGUEIRAS, Fernando. A tolerância à corrupção no Brasil: uma antinomia entre normas morais e prática social. Opin. Publica [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.2, pp.386-421. ISSN 0104-6276.

This article addresses the issue of corruption in Brazil and comes from the contradiction, existing within the Brazilian public opinion, between moral obligations and the meanings of political corruption. The article discusses the concept of corruption and how it is built in Brazil, and also builds a theoretical perspective on corruption through empirical analysis. It is based on the results of the survey on corruption, conducted in year 2008.

Keywords : corruption; democracy; morality; social practices.
