Barbarism and neoconservatism: the challenges of the ethical-political project

Maria Lucia S Barroco About the author

This article was developped from the Seminar "30 Years of Congresso da Virada", which was held in São Paulo in 2009. Analyzing the challenges of the ethical-political project at the current moment, it points out the main determinations of contemporary sociability in order to highlight the dominant ethos in the post-modern neoliberalism setting and the aspects that both favor neoconservatism and hamper the viability of the values and assumptions from the Code of Professional Ethics.
