Abstract

SILVA PINOCHET, Beatriz. THE SOCIETY OF EQUALITY AND THE EGALITARIAN SOCIAL MOVEMENT IN CHILE IN THE 19TH CENTURY. Cuadernos de Historia [online]. 2019, n.51, pp.125-149. ISSN 0719-1243.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-12432019000200125.

This paper reviews the process of emergence of the egalitarian social movement during the period of1848-1851 in Chile. It also seeks to comprehend the causes that provoke its appearance and the alliances that took shape to put pressure toward a democratic transformation of the Chilean political scene. The findings are based on an expense analysis of primary sources and tries to understand the egalitarian demand and its contributions to the renewal of the political debate of the period. The paper seeks to propose that the egalitarian movement supported its demand in a democratic-republican conception of freedom, equality and fraternity, key aspect that has not been exposed so clearly proved in other studies, and that this movement was an essential piece of the process that manage to democratize Chilean politics at the period.

Keywords : Society of Equality; Chile; 1848; social movements; democratization; democratic-republicanism.
