The current paper primarily compares Caffi’s essay Violence and Sociability (1946) to Arendt’s essay On Violence (1969). Starting from the historical context of «politics», the journal that published Violence and Sociability and for which Arendt was a contributor, I will reconstruct the common themes that emerge from their reflections. Through demonstrating the comparability of Caffi’s thought with Arendtian political theory, the aim is to argue that Caffi is an author unjustly condemned to oblivion.
