AbstractIn the Arendts’ perspective, since the condemnation of Socrates, opened a abyss almost impassable between philosophy and politics. This abyss did with that philosophy would be cut off from the womb of chores as well as public and passes the target man as a being singular, while aiming at the man in the perspective of plurality became exclusivity of the policy. This type of target, second Hannah Arendt, made with that authors such as Descartes, Husserl and Heidegger laughter, to the bosom of their works, what our author will criticize as being the modern solipsism, from which the man is seen as a unique being, isolated of the other, or, when next to them, if decays in relation to its authentic existence. Thus, the aim of this article and examine the consequences of the condemnation of Socrates to the area of political philosophy and, fundamentally, analyze how, this historical landmark/hermeneutic, man was understood, by philosophy, in its singularity naked and alienated from of other individuals.
