La retórica bajo el barniz de la lógica: Samuel Ramos y su discurso sobre la inferioridad mexicana

Eugenia Houvenaghel (2014) ROMANCE QUARTERLY. 61(1). p.54-64
abstract
Samuel Ramos reflects on the essence of the Mexican people in the philosophical essay El perfil del hombre y la cultura en Mexico (1934). He emphasizes the sentiment of inferiority and the desire to hide this inferiority by camouflage strategies as a distinctive characteristic of the Mexican. This analysis of Ramos's Perfil unveils a discrepancy between the form that the author imitatesthe scientific treatiseand the true argumentative constitution of his textthe rhetorical discourse. Along with the anti-rhetoric position of the rationalists, Ramos considers rhetorical argumentation as an inferior approach that has to be dissimulated and hidden under a layer of science.
