Ethics, Political Symbols, and Comparative Cultural Analysis: The Case of Chile


This article is about culture, politics, ethics, and symbolism in Chile. More precisely, it is a case study on the relationship among these factors, gleaned from surveys conducted in 2010 and 2012 of Chilean college students and faculty. This survey is part of an overall multiyear and multination study examining the connections among symbols, language, culture, and ethics. In the Chilean case, the concern is with identifying the structure of political symbolism in building, communicating, and cultivating ethical responses. This article equally highlights an interdisciplinary approach that builds on the respective disciplines of the authors: public administration (Smith), international relations and comparative politics (Morris), and economics (Riveros).
