A convivência de diferentes culturas políticas no espaço metropolitano

Léa Guimarães Souki About the author

The aim of this paper is to examine the articulations of the traditional political culture, understood as "civic culture", and of the "New Political Culture" (NPC), while cohabiting the same metropolitan area. The central question is whether it makes sense, in a country, like Brazil, with little time of existing democracy, to develop a concept to capture the NCP that is adapted to our idiosyncrasies. This effort will involve a theoretical and methodological discussion on the concept of political culture, as well as a discussion on the adequacy of new design of the NCP to a metropolitan culture of recent democratic tradition.
