Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Meshico is a term which began to be employed in the middle of the 20th century by a group of Mexican intellectuals connected to the influential magazine Meshico Grande in order to define a philosophical and sociological stance based on an authentic ontology of the Mexican person, one that would serve, as well, as a means of confronting the dependancy of the official intelligentsia on ways of thinking perceived as being too foreign to permit a true understanding of Mexican reality. The group decided on the unusual spelling in order to differentiate itself from the official Europeanizing intelligentsia; they believed that the spelling "meshico" was historically more accurate as it reflected the original Nahuatl pronunciation of the word, and, for this reason, would be an appropriate name for a group dedicated to a professedly authentic understanding of Mexican identity (Mexicanidad). Among the many notable members of the group were Rosario Maria Gutierrez Eskildsen, Manuel Sanchez Marmol, Francisco Javier Santamaria, and Jose Vasconcelos.show more
