Critical Marxism in Mexico

Adolfo Sánchez Vázquez and Bolívar Echeverría

Series:

Stefan Gandler

In Critical Marxism in Mexico, Stefan Gandler, coming from the tradition of the Frankfurt School, reveals the contributions that Adolfo Sánchez Vázquez and Bolívar Echeverría have made to universal thought. While in recent times Latin America has taken its distance from global power centers, and reorganised its political and economic relations, in philosophy the same tendency is barely visible. Critical Marxism in Mexico is a contribution to the reorganisation of international philosophical discussion, with Critical Theory as the point of departure.
Despite having studied in Europe, where philosophical Eurocentrism remains virulent, Gandler opens his eyes to another tradition of modernity and offers an account of the life and philosophy of Adolfo Sánchez Vázquez and Bolívar Echeverría, former senior faculty members at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).

José M. Aricó

In a work centred on Marx's harsh biography of Simón Bolívar, José Aricó examines why Latin America was apparently 'excluded' from Marx's thought, challenging the allegation that this expressed some 'Eurocentric' prejudice.
Aricó shows how the German thinker's hostility towards the Bonapartism and authoritarianism he identified in the Liberator coloured his attitude towards the continent and the significance of its independence-processes.
Whilst criticising Marx's misreading of Latin-American realities, Aricó demonstrates contemporaneous, countervailing tendencies in Marx's thought, including his appraisal of the revolutionary potentialities of other 'peripheral' extra-European societies. As such, Aricó convincingly argues that Marx's work was not a dogma of linear 'progress', but a living, contradictory body of thought constantly in development.

narrow Eurocentrism, as amply demonstrated by James Morris Blaut: So Brenner’s theory has this simple geography: there is distance-decay of interest and relevance as we enlarge the scale, from rural England to England as a whole, to Western Europe as a whole, to Europe as a whole, to the world as a whole

Although the old institutionalist labor history had been rejuvenated in a social history of labor in the 1960s and

Law of History In support of the notion that modern art is neither uniform or homogeneous nor simply Western, Craven refers to two recent and comprehensive interpretations of modernisation. These two interpretations take the peripheral standpoint decisively into account: Eurocentrism (1988) by Samir

Eurocentrism, as we shall see. Thinking the Centre from the Outside In this sense, the pretext of the Italian case serves well, because this art, more than any other, has been, for many centuries, at the centre of art’s historical process, as a paradigm, criterion or counterpoint for other histories and
