Description
Summary:The essay La expresión americana (1957), by José Lezama Lima, can be understood as a contribution to the History of Ideas in Latin America, in the philosophical tradition of José Gaos, Leopoldo Zea and Andrés Roig. We thus approach the Lezamian theory of image and knowledge by analyzing its myth-poetic-hermeneutical method and its concept-character “the Baroque Lord” (through the figures of Carlos Sigüenza, Sor Juana, José Kondori and Aleijadinho), and establishing relationships, from a decolonial perspective, with some contemporary political-philosophical proposals: Donna Haraway, Josefina Ludmer, Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui and Achille Mbembe.
