In order to make general reflections on two important concepts in the definition of the characteristics of Cuban society, justice and social participation, placing them in the context of the daily reproduction of family groups, it is appropriate to address the philosophical aspect of both processes as well as the current socioeconomic context of Cuban society. On the philosophical plane, both processes may be perceived in a dialectical relationship which is representative of the most diverse relationships and social contradictions. Social justice as an accomplishment of contemporary civil society provides a propitious setting for the development of the most effective forms of social participation. In the same manner, as the forms of social participation become more effective--entailing direct action by the masses in the solution of their problems-we would be on the road to a more complete system of social justice.
