And, if there did exist a culture whose creation did not involve synthesis, then, what would it involve? Since Enlightenment thinkers carried out their self-examination, self-description, and self-labelling, many conceptualizations of this era exist which, for the sake of escaping excessive anthologizing, I will avoid both listing and discussing. From a leftist perspective, the Maravallian vision did, however, come to indirectly consolidate the iconic vision of the Baroque as an incarnation of Spanish identity: Retrieved from ” https: It served to confront the superpower of the time and to stimulate the proto-national processes of reinforcement and unification, for which we have some fairly defined dates linked to their deployment and operation: At this point, it is clear that the baroque is a contradictory paradigm which is unquestionably complex, quite complex, with tendencies pushing in diverging paths.

Moving on to the second idea: Moreover, based on what Weber in Iarocci 11 would assert, out of the pre-Baroque period —the Discovery of the Americas, the Renaissance and the Reformation—only the Protestant Reformation would be integrated into the genealogy of modernity, due to its avant la lettre embodiment of reason and modern subjectivity.

The Baroque: the intellectual and geopolitical reasons for a historiographical erasure

Certainly, but the process of writing the grand narrative of modernity has taken the key criteria of rationalism, empiricism, sensism and Protestant subjectivity for itself, simultaneously erasing their presence from the Baroque. However, as Raymond Williams indicates, not all cultural discourse is hegemonic; rather, marginal discourses do exist as well —whether emerging or residual—, even despite the fact that the integrative capacity of hegemonic discourse may have seemed to overpower every era.


Later on, he developed a seminar on Marx’s Das Kapitalwhich lasted six years and included barrodo systematic readings of the book. However, The Black Legend as such was merely a set of mechanisms for producing political turmoil and propaganda set into motion by emerging powers aspiring to gain independence or to compete with the Spanish Empire.

Those which articulate the modern discourse of the Enlightenment. Indeed, the Lacanian affirmation: The purely postcolonial discourses applied to Hispanic America and countries such as Spain fall on the border between a colonizing and a postcolonial nation.

His investigations where mainly and broadly concerned on: What would these elements be?


In this respect, I would like to note something that can only be justified by my first trip to Mexico during which I became conscious of a very striking and silenced classicist tendency within the Baroque. Moreover, it is crucial to consider that changing the balance of power within the ruling class or between different social classes, along with bolovar in the geopolitical system —the relation of forces on an international scale or even at the regional level —, can modify the relative position of various cultural discourses.

Nonetheless, this fact will not alter the grand narrative of modernity written by Northern and Central Europe. Thus, the baroque proposes a model bopivar is at once unitary and binary, authoritarian and schizoid.

What ecjeverria Bacon, Gassendi, Descartes, Galileo? Les Dossiers du Grihl. The process that started up at that time, which is no longer the Black Legend, and the one that is doubtlessly connected to the previous phase through the use of similar rhetorical resources, is a process which could be termed as the displacement of Spain and its empire to the periphery of a modern Europe in the making.

Consequently, the Ehos and the Iberian Peninsula were erased from the grand narrative of European and Western modernity.

The Baroque, therefore, had no chance of producing its own baroque science; science could only belong to Protestant countries, where Protestantism was not only the equivalent of the freedom of belief but of, above all, the freedom to think, effacing all social, religious, and political conflict from the Protestant north.

Why has no one at least suggested that Neo classicism plays a determining role in Mexican society and culture? He participated on the German student movement in the late s, establishing friendship and long-lasting collaboration with its leaders, including Rudi Dutschke.

The course followed by science is equivalent to the course followed by other realities and concepts.

I am inclined to say that it happened during the period in which Eric Hobsbawn located the two great revolutions: These powers would become responsible for writing the global echecerria of Europe, relocating the Spanish Empire to a peripheral, subaltern and non-modern space. Despite this fact, the Baroque and the Enlightenment came to be seen as antithetical. In an attempt to escape essentializing identities, we fall into the very same trap we had tried to avoid.

The words of Oliver Cromwell at barorco opening of Parliament on September 17, are enlightening:
