Anarchisme argentin (1890-1930) : Contribution à une mythanalyse

Abstract : Anarchism was introduced in Argentina by European inmigrants, and became a multiform movement: syndicalism, illegalism, alternative pedagogy, among others. In spite of their differences, numerous individuals would call themselvs "anarchists". The study of the imaginary (based on the "sociological myth-analysis") has allowed us to clear the homogeneity elements within this multiform movement. Main features of the Argentine anarchist imaginary: The anarchist man is a Prometheus (a civilizing titan fueld by his rebellious temper) in a compound portrait: a "gaucho", a propagandist / pedagogue, a hero. Anarchism is also an "against" action which makes live the Anarchy's mythical drama (destruction / sacrifice / redemption path). Finally, it is a great hope for radical change to come (Revolution is a break in historic time), in which the People are the vector. So the Argentine anarchist imaginary is a dreamlike interbreeding of European dreams adjusted to the Argentine environment.
