PARRAZ, Ivonil. The disguise of the force.Translated byMarcos Fernandes Gonçalves. Kriterion [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0100-512X.

In this article we intend to analyze the definition of justice that Paschal offers such as it presents itself in the "kingdom of the concupiscence". For him, justice is "prevention of sedition". Preventing any revolt is the guarantee of peace in the State. For in such a way, the good art in governing is not enough, stood out Trois discours sur la condition des grandes, it is necessary to use the force. However, as the force if does not leave to manipulate for dealing with a concrete quality, whereas justice lends itself to this, being a spiritual quality, justice is manipulated to justify the force empted the old concept of justice: "giving to each one what it must to", it becomes the disguise of the force.

Keywords : justice; force; custom; concupiscence.
