MENEZES, Marilde Loiola de. Direct Democracy and Parliamentary Democracy: a brief history of the democratic institutions. Sociologias [online]. 2010, n.23, pp.20-45. ISSN 1517-4522.

In the debate on the immense cultural legacy of ancient Greece, the issue of democracy is always mentioned as an example of the direct participation of citizens in collective decisions, as opposed to the modern concept of political representation. In the search not only for differences but also for similarities between the two concepts, this article intends to demonstrate that the theory of the separation of powers, advocated by Aristotle, and later Montesquieu, leads to a prominent connection between ancient and modern democracy.

Palavras-chave : Democracy; Participation; Representation.
