Une exigence fondamentale de los angeles pensée contemporaine est d'en finir avec l. a. « philosophie politique ».
Qu'est-ce que los angeles philosophie politique ? Son opération centrale est de ramener los angeles politique à l'exercice du « libre jugement » et de l. a. « dialogue », dans un espace public où ne comptent en définitive que les opinions.
On sait que, bien avant d'être arendtien, ou kantien, le thème de l'opposition irréductible de los angeles vérité et de l'opinion est platonicien. Ce qui, en revanche, n'est pas platonicien est l'idée que los angeles politique serait ainsi éternellement vouée à l'opinion, éternellement disjointe de toute vérité.
Sauf pour qui pense que le commentaire de bistrot, ou l. a. dialog entre amis, constitue « l'essence même de l. a. vie politique », il est en effet clair que le conflit des evaluations n'est politique qu'autant qu'il se cristallise dans une décision. los angeles query d'une attainable vérité politique doit alors être examinée non du seul element de los angeles « dialogue », mais dans le processus complexe qui noue l. a. dialogue à los angeles décision.
