Abstract: Anchored in the rationalist approach, but with the impossibility of consensus rule and seeking to show the characteristics of the majority rule and some of its problems, as the Condorcet paradox, and solutions to these problems, such as logrolling, this article intends to review and synthesize theory about it, based on the main contributions to the theme. The study is justified because, as a process of preference aggregation, majority rule is used for election purposes and internal political processes in a large number of nations.
