Abstract

Portuguese Abstract: Este trabalho tem por objetivo confirmar a existência de dois paradigmas na ciência política contemporânea, chamados respectivamente de paradigma dominante, relacionado ao modelo pluralista e liberal de organização estatal, e de paradigma alternativo, relacionado ao modelo marxista de organização estatal. Além disso, mostraremos como, dentro de cada um desses paradigmas, as teorias políticas contemporâneas analisam os conceitos de estado e de democracia. Pretendemos mostrar também que as teorias políticas do paradigma dominante não estudam o estado como ator político, estudando, em seu lugar, o regime democrático estabelecido nos países que passaram por processos de redemocratização nas décadas de 1980 e 1990, com ênfase principal nos países da América Latina e do Leste Europeu.

English Abstract: This study aims to confirm the existence of two paradigms in contemporary political science, respectively called dominant paradigm, related to pluralistic and liberal model of state organization, and alternative paradigm, related to the Marxist model of state organization. In addition, we show how, within each of these paradigms, contemporary political theories analyze the concepts of state and democracy. We also intend to show that the political theories of the dominant paradigm do not study the state as a political actor, studying, instead, the democratic regime established in countries that have undergone democratization processes in the 1980s and 1990s, with main emphasis on American countries Latin America and Eastern Europe.
