Abstract

QUEREILHAC, Soledad. WRITERS, PRESS AND OCCULTISM IN BUENOS AIRES BETWEEN CENTURIES. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2013, n.28, pp.91-105. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112013000200006.

The present paper analyzes the participation of intellectuals and writers in Argentine newspapers and magazines, with regard to the question of occult sciences, during the years of between-centuries. We are interested in a corpus of texts published as much in spiritists and theosophical magazines (Constancia, Philadelphia), like in newspapers and magazines of massive circulation (La Nación, Caras y Caretas). The tracking of these articles and brief essays not only allows to appreciate the importance of the occultism, related to its proximity with some "positive" sciences, but also the multiple positions that assumed certain writers and intellectuals of the period.

Keywords : writers; press; spiritism; theosophy; between centuries.
