The present work analyzes philosophically one of the most pernicious and contingent human emotions: rage. Since Ancient Times this has been the subject of great debates, and Martha Nussbaum uses them to show the connection between rage, revenge and justice. Her interpretation begins with The Oresteia, by Aeschylus, in which not only does she highlight the importance of reasoning, but also the transformation of feelings to achieve justice. The main thesis is that rage always involves a desire for revenge that must be transcended if one searches for the desired dictum of the goddess Dike. This way, the philosopher counterpoints several ethical proposals ranging from Christian forgiveness, to examples of empathy and generosity of emblematic figures, such as Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi.
