Abstract: »The third chapter on violence is fromi T.S. Landini. She writes on the subject of sexual violence against children and adolescents in twentieht-century Brazil. Inspired by Norbert Elias's discussion on Zivilisation and Kultur, Landini studies conceptual changes of the notion of sexual violence, as well as changes in the types of violence that were deemed unacceptable. In other words, Landini studies "not violence in itself but the sensibility that defines it as violence." The discussion, as posed by key experts and social groups, is examined in order to chart the direction of the process that brought sexual violence against children and adolescents from a "minor" problem to the center of public debate in contemporary Brazil.« (François Dépelteau and Tatiana Savoia Landini. »Introduction.« Norbert Elias & Empirical Research.
