Vasconcelos suggests that although European culture in its expansion has broken the principle of territoriality and hence dissociated the principles of nature and of the state, these principles continue to function, but now separately, in the histories of Anglo-Saxon and Hispanic colonization. Still, my readings of these modefnismo intellectuals are unashamedly sympathetic as, finally, I suggest that these modernist accounts of autonomy and transculturation can retain their relevance even in our own era of postmodernity.

Though intellectuals therefore work for the state, they recognize that the crowds themselves are the bearers of the power upon which both the state and intellectuals depend.

Immersing himself in the experience of the real, and inhabiting or claiming subjectivity absolutely, demands an obstinate denial of the state and the market that, in concert, fix and freeze nature, reduce movement to triviality, and establish petty categorizations of taste. Spanish View all editions and formats Rating: Transculturation now becomes a principle of autonomy as, at the end of this mystic vision, life is envisaged as the practice of uncontained joy, moderniemo which we will be empowered: Given this, it is worth returning to the attempts of modernist intellectuals to achieve autonomy from the state, however apocalyptic, mystical, or self-effacing their efforts turned out to be.

He was a member of Uruguay’s “Generation of ’45,” also known as the “Critical Generation”: To set a reading intention, click through to any list item, and look for the panel on the left hand side:.

Yet every such attempt to construct an autonomous literary field also risks instituting a new set of instruments of symbolic credit modernis,o hence a new state system, initiating thereby new cycles of transculturation, but also new parameters of intellectual dependency. Vasconcelos identifies the state with a logic of necessity cloaked in reason; by contrast, the coming darko of universal mestizaje which his book announces ushers in the possibility that unfettered taste and love may guide choices that are no longer forced by the dichotomies of rational identity.


There is no suggestion that autonomy can be easily, or even completely, achieved. The intellectual function is still overwhelmingly a state function. Mientras que desde la econom. This is a draft: For Vasconcelos, true freedom is characterized by taste conditioned only by affect: Citations are based on reference standards.

Though their various attempts to gain some autonomy from the state may be presented as an abnegation of privilege, they also indicate an acknowledgement of the multitudinous power upon which the state itself also depends, and to which the state is forced to react. Indeed, tobacco works to bring down the colonial state, provoking “the beginnings of national consciousness” after “trade, political, ecclesiastical, and social monopolies” raise barriers to its eventual “triumph, its universal transculturation” By making political divisions absolute–naturalizing national borders by projecting them upon mountain ranges–Latin American culture constructs its own form of necessity that ties it down as surely as an insistence upon racial difference limits Anglo-Saxon culture.

It is not a critique in that it does not concentrate upon unveiling the gaps or fissures within hegemony for these are at best symptoms of a clash of forces whose arena is elsewhere ; but then nor does it accede to hegemonic claims to fullness, for this is an open social universe that claims neither outside nor limit.

Anglo-Saxon colonists continued to believe that culture was racially bound and racially exclusive–that the torch of civilization passed linearly from one biological race to another–and so acted with “the confessed or tacit intention of cleaning the earth of Indians, Mongolians or Blacks” The intellectual function has frequently been concerned with this double process of translation–of state dicta and of cultural desires.

Genesis and Structure of the Literary Field. Hispanic civilization remains fragmented, and therefore weak, because it remains under the sway of a series of petty nationalisms. Login to add to list. Historically, each race, by which Vasconcelos means a social organization founded upon biological premises, fulfilled its particular cultural and political destiny within a set geographical confine. The second path stresses that transculturation remains open, identity unfixed, and the state only a secondary effect of constituent power.

Politics “appears universal,” and can be conducted–perhaps even, is better conducted–in or from the aesthetic sphere, rather than through the state.

The form of the state, in other words, is not a given. This implies that our civilization, with all its defects, may be the chosen one to assimilate and to transform mankind into a new type; that within our civilization, the warp, the multiple and rich plasma of future humanity is e being prepared.

This desire for self-regulation powers the drive for independence; it rsma also this idea of self-regulation that enables the concept of transculturation to stand in for or mediate the dream of intellectual autonomy. Intellectuals trade in the symbolic, postponing temporal rewards of money and status, or disparaging them should they be achieved.

These are limits imposed in the name of reason–and the transition from the “law of violence” 28 to the “dictates of reason” 29 is an advance in the “process that is gradually liberating us from the domination of necessity” The proper governance of Latin America will require new forms of knowledge and understanding.
