Abstract/Excerpt

An analysis of the way in which Latin American liberation theology dialectically transforms orthodox Marxism, by turning Marxism into a collection of analytic tools that it puts to new uses. The chapter draws parallels between this process and the work of various European Hegelian Marxists (especially Georg Lukacs but also the Frankfurt School). It shows how liberation theological can appropriate methods of Marxist analysis while simultaneously rejecting orthodox Marxist conclusions and Marxist political tactics.

Comments

This article was published in Spanish. The PDF contains the Spanish version, followed by an English version; in both cases, they are my final version before proofs. There are thus undoubtedly errors in the Spanish, but that's the language in which the article appeared.
