Project Details


he research is developed from the perspective of cultural history, an approach that constitutes a critique of the structuralism and Marxism of the 1960s and 1970s. The aim is to give importance to the nuances of the period. It is no longer a question of understanding the dominant structures at a given moment in history, but of making their nuances visible. In that sense, the individual, the subjectivities, the singularities, acquire prominence as an expression of the small ruptures of an epoch. It is not, however, a question of an extreme subjectivism. It is the game between socialization and subjectivation that allows the emergence of particular ideas in environments where the dominant ideologies are others. It is in this same sense that Michel De Certeau emphasizes his interest in "the other procedures, also infinitesimal, that have not been "privileged" by history and that do not exercise an innumerable activity among the meshes of the instituted technologies" (de Certeau, Michel, La invention de l'ordre du jour. I. Artes de hacer, Universidad Iberoamericana, Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios de Occidente, Mexico, 2007, p.57). Therefore, the theme of this research is the emergence of political practices and representations (the anarchism of Biófilo Panclasta) different from those that could be foreseen as a continuation of a certain historical trajectory (the conservative hegemony and the symbolic preponderance of Catholicism). It is from these reflections that the research aims to answer the following question:
What are the conditions that allow the emergence of singular representations and practices, such as the case of the anarchism of Biófilo Panclasta during the conservative hegemony?
