Abstract

Abstract:

The article compares Thomas Jefferson's and Domingo F. Sarmiento's treatment of the indigenous figure. Using Eugenio d'Ors' concept of the "Baroque Wild Man," it argues that the Baroque manifests itself in these statesmen through their search for a paternal and primitive ancestor; a prehistorical father residing at the core of their projects to enter into modernity.
