Abstract

In the transition from the 19th to the 20th century, an influential group of conservative intellectuals promoted and combined multiple cultural practices tending to study and promote a "pure" and "uniform" language. In this context, some of them resorted to a very particular tool: the science of language. This book reconstructs and analyzes the process of transferring this knowledge in Colombia that developed between 1867 and 1911, to show how the scientific study of language became a mechanism that allowed its bearers to claim control over it.
