Abstract

This paper investigates the role of the acclamation in the constitution of the public opinion. The main argument of the essay is that acclaiming means to express chorally dissent or consensus, and therefore it should be consider a political act. However, a few political problems concerning the autonomy of such a choral voice and its manipulative dimension emerge. The paper sketches a philosophical itinerary from ancient Greek to Habermas in order to show the conceptual nucleus of a political philosophy of the acclamation. In the final part, the paper investigates the relationship between acclamation and social networks, arguing that they constitute a new form of public opinion and a challenge for future democracy.

Este trabajo investiga el papel de la aclamación en la constitución de la opinión pública. El argumento principal del ensayo es que aclamar signi"ca expresar coralmente el disenso o el consenso, y por tanto debe considerarse un acto político. Sin embargo, surgen algunos problemas políticos relativos a la autonomía de dicha voz coral y a su dimensión manipuladora. El artículo esboza un itinerario "losó"co desde la antigua Grecia hasta Habermas para mostrar el núcleo conceptual de una "losofía política de la aclamación. En la parte "nal, el artículo investiga la relación entre la aclamación y las redes sociales, argumentando que constituyen una nueva forma de opinión pública y un reto para la democracia futura.
