Jean-Marie Muller. Entrar en l’època de la noviolència. Barcelona: Institut Català Internacional per la Pau; Líniazero, 2015.

Entrar en l’època de la noviolència (“Entering the age of nonviolence”) discusses the urgent need to break apart from the ideology of “necessary violence”, which is the structural basis of our societies. The notion of nonviolence that the author proposes does not avoid conflict or struggle; on the contrary, nonviolence generates outraged action and resistance. In this sense, nonviolence, as a philosophy and strategy, allows for “moral demand and political realism to reconcile”.
