Abstract

In this paper, I inquire into the possibility or legitimacy of the edu- cational role of the State by comparing Carl Schmitt’s political theory, with the theory of his reviewer, Leo Strauss. The two philosophers reveal the Hobbesian root of the concept of the Political (friend-enemy). Thus, evil can be understood as the excess of power or metaphysical corruption. Although Schmitt and Strauss differ on the interpretation of liberalism, they both seek to overcome it. If evil and sin are proper of men, the kantian rational morality is insufficient; Schmitt’s “political theology” states a plus, since he enroots the concept of the Political in the concepts of the Moral and Religious.
En este trabajo, investigo la posibilidad o legitimidad de la función educativa del Estado comparando la teoría política de Carl Schmitt, con la teoría de su revisor, Leo Strauss. Los dos filósofos revelan la raíz hobbesiana del concepto de lo político (amigo-enemigo). Por lo tanto, el mal puede ser entendido como el exceso de poder o corrupción metafísica. Aunque Schmitt y Strauss difieren en la interpretación de liberalismo, ambos intentan superarlo. Si el mal y el pecado son propios del hombre, la moral racional kantiana es insuficiente; la “Teología Política” de Schmitt afirma algo extra, desde arraiga el concepto de lo político en los conceptos de la moral y lo religioso.
