From here we can see one of the elements capable of permitting a double reading of the process leading to modernity. Histories, epistemologies, and identities in the eighteenth-century Atlantic worldStanford, University of California Press, What culture is not derived from synthesis?

It was a matter of proposing a new colonization, but one carried out by modern European powers, and not by a superstitious, irrational, lazy, gothic or baroque and efheverria country.

Consequently, it is necessary to speak of the pluralities of the baroque, as opposed to its monological and univocal envisioning. This exclusive grand narrative of modernity offered no room for the Baroque Gothicisma defining echeverria of superstitious, barbaric, uncivilized peoples incapable of reason. What is meant by the statement historically the baroque has been the cultural state of Latin America? From the standpoint of a not so faraway present, one must not forget the way in which Western hegemonic powers have symbolically represented their past through the grand narrative of modernity.


Leibniz et le baroqueParis, Minuit, These powers would become responsible for writing the global history of Europe, relocating the Spanish Empire to a peripheral, subaltern and non-modern space. And in order to finally complete this circle of arrogance which ecyeverria accompanies the helplessness of the otherin the early nineteenth century this modern Europe, with the Schlegels as its protagonists, would definitively write the role reserved for Spain: Nonetheless, when he writes in chapter one: Spain is the land of superstition and submission to the Holy See of Romemaking it the natural enemy of the British especially because of its contempt for all that belongs to God, or rather, to the pure God imagined by Cromwell and his people.

Let us focus of the two following ideas: The fundamental problem is, therefore, the fact that the Baroque echeverrria seen as a homogenous and closed whole whether through stylistic criteria or through culturalist visions despite its evident discursive plurality. Since Enlightenment thinkers carried out their self-examination, self-description, and self-labelling, many conceptualizations of this era exist which, for the sake of escaping excessive anthologizing, I will avoid both listing and discussing.

But, are these tools not found in the Baroque? Or, perhaps it all comes down to proposing a new hermeneutic in which the Baroque and the Enlightenment would join together and conflictingly fertilize and establish a modernity that, passing through 20 th century recycling, would be the same exheverria of today. Emphasizing its uncivilized character, Northern European nations metaphorically displaced the Spanish Empire to the periphery of modern Europe. Nonetheless, this fact will not alter the grand narrative of modernity written by Northern and Central Europe.

Prieto, Havana, Letras Cubanas,pp. Moreover, based on what Weber in Iarocci 11 would assert, out of the pre-Baroque period —the Discovery of the Americas, the Renaissance and the Reformation—only the Protestant Reformation would be integrated into the genealogy of modernity, due to its avant la lettre embodiment of reason and modern subjectivity.

This alternate hermeneutic would entail a coming together of the Baroque and the Enlightenment; a dynamic, complex, and conflicting process establishing a modernity which would continue into the modernity of today. Les Dossiers du Grihl.
