Analysis of Male "Anger" in the Context of Violence against Women in order to Design a Framework for Construction of Responsibility

Luis Botello Lonngi


This article proposes a particular way of approaching male affection in the process of "anger" of men in the context of violence. In this framework, we proceed to the identification of the mechanisms that cause that the violence of men remains invariably. We intend to show how certain emotions emerge as an important source of interactive knowledge. We propose the analysis of these emotions as dynamic elements in the exchanges between subjects in their daily relationships, as well as in the establishment of autonomy and decision-making. Finally, we discuss how the emotional dimension in men can participate in the construction of what we call approximate responsibility to deal with the hegemonic male rules and to disable mechanisms of oppression.
