En Busca de la Raza Cosmica: Tematica del Ensayo Iberoamericano (In Search of the Cosmic Race: Thematic of The Iberoamerican Attempt).
Jaen, Didier T.
This essay examines the search for an ethnic identity as conducted by three South American writer-philosophers during three distinct historical periods. The author shows how the thinking of Sarmiento, Rodo, and Vasconcelos corresponds to each one's respective period of time and yet transcends the same to arrive at similar conclusions. Included is a list of footnotes. (SK)
