COLOMBI, Beatriz. Alfonso Reyes and "Notas sobre la inteligencia americana". Cuad. CILHA [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.1, pp. 109-123. ISSN 1852-9615.

In 1936 Buenos Aires hosted the XIV PEN Clubs International Congress and the Seventh Conversation of the Intellectual Cooperation Organization. In the context of the rise of fascism and totalitarian regimes in Europe and the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, European intellectuals were impelled to redefine their place, and through the thirties' the ideology of the writer as clerc began to be substituted by that of the committed writer. At this polemic stage, Alfonso Reyes reads his "Notes on American intelligence", where he stands for the cultural parity of America and Europe and  inagurates a critical reflection on the intelectual in a society coming from a colonial experience. This work traces the intellectual networks and conceptual continuities in the work of Reyes aiming to illuminate the reading of the essay.

Palabras clave : Alfonso Reyes; Redes intelectuales; Inteligencia americana; Alfonso Reyes; Intellectuals Networks; American intellectuals.
