    6. 6. Hanna Arendt (Hannover, 1906 - Nueva York, 1975) –Political Sciences Power : corresponds to the human ability not just to act, but to act in concert. Power is never the property of an individual; it belongs to a group and remains in existence only so long as the group keeps together. Strength: unequivocally designates something in the singular, an individual capacity. Force: should be reserved for movements in nature, or to other humanly uncontrollable circumstances, that is to indicate the energy released by physical or social movements. Authority: is a specific source of power. It represents power vested in persons by virtue of their offices, or of their "authoritativeness" where relevant information and knowledge is concerned. It is one of the possible means by which individuals achieve the "strength" as leaders or participants in decision making that gives them persuasive power. Authority does not stem merely from the attributes of the individual. Its exercise depends on a willingness on the part of others to grant respect and legitimacy, rather than on one's personal ability to persuade or coerce. Violence: is distinguished by its instrumental character. “Violence can destroy power; it is utterly incapable of creating it”
    7. 7. Power - Violence Typology: • self-directed violence • interpersonal violence • collective violence The nature of violent acts • physical • sexual • psychological • involving deprivation or neglect Collective violence social violence that is committed to advance a particular social agenda includes, for example, crimes of hate committed by organized groups, terrorist acts and mob violence. political violence includes war and related violent conflicts, state violence and similar acts carried out by larger groups. economic violence includes attacks by larger groups motivated by economic gain – such as attacks carried out with the purpose of disrupting economic activity, denying access to essential services, or creating economic division and fragmentation. Clearly, acts committed by larger groups can have multiple motives.
    8. 8. How is Matilda’s life related to Pip’s story? On what grounds do the people of Bouganville accept Mr Watts as a teacher? Consider the different aspects related to the idea of power (as proposed by Hanna Arendt) present in the film. What types of violence do we find? Which is the function of literature in Mr. Pip?
