GONZALEZ, William. Resilience as genealogy and faculty of judgment. Prax. filos. [online]. 2017, n.45, pp.203-229. ISSN 0120-4688.

Resilience is often defined as a process that allows human beings to endure a life difficulty and turn it into something positive. This article shows that it is necessary to go further: 1. resilience must be the genealogy of the emergence of imposed values (in F. Nietzsche and M. Foucault’s sense) that frequently make us suffer. Resentment and vengeance must not be considered as ways of emancipation of sadness, since they turn us into free-slaves, as is the case of the theodicy. 2. The resilient needs to recover the faculty of judgment that he lost for the action of suffering to re-elaborate and re-evaluate what happened (J. Poulain), and thus leaving the tenebrous path that leads to a false self (D. Winnicott). The attachment theory of J. Bowlby is indispensable for achieving such duty, for the reason that we are nothing without the security base that the others give us.

Palabras clave : resilience; genealogy; faculty of judgment; theodicy; false self; attachment.
