DIAZ, Jorge Aurelio. Sin and autonomy. Prax. filos. [online]. 2017, n.45, pp.259-283. ISSN 0120-4688.

The article tries to show how a revision of the theological concept of 'sin', as it is taught by both the Catholic and the Protestant traditions, allows us to grasp a better comprehension of the origins of the double concept of ‘will’, which is to be found at the center of discussions regarding human freedom: the Christian concept of total autonomy (voluntarism), which is inadmissible for human reason, and the rational concept (intellectualism), which identifies will and intellect, and denies the traditional idea of guilt. However, it seems that denying the Christian concept of ‘will’ would undermine the basis on which liberal democracy is grounded.

Palabras clave : B. Spinoza; sin; freedom; will; autonomy; democracy.
