Abstract

ALTAMIRANO, Carlos. Ideas for a program of intellectual History. Tempo soc. [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.1, pp. 9-17. ISSN 0103-2070.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-20702007000100001.

The text introduces and explains the proposal for a research program within the field known as intellectual history. The central concern is Latin American intellectual history, more typically reduced to a history of ideas. The program outlined in the article formulates an alternative approach, based on tools created by the sociology of intellectuals, political history and literary criticism in its analysis of literary works and discursive practices.

Keywords : Latin America; Discourse; Intellectuals; Literature of ideas; Rhetoric.
