Synopsis: Secondary Moderns examines Lezama Lima's analyses of Latin American history and culture. The study begins by carefully demonstrating how Lezama breaks with the modern Latin American intellectual tradition that has explored the question of Latin American in terms of an "identity politics," and moves on to a close reading of the theories of aesthetics, representation, resistance, criticism, death, religion, and ethics that Lezama puts forth via his notion of the "American expression." The work concludes by analyzing Lezama's "politics of affirmation" by scrutinizing his writings on Cuba and the Cuban Revolution.
Secondary Moderns represents a thorough analysis of Lezama's cultural project, Latin American twentieth-century thought, and the complex intersection of Latin American studies and the post-Heideggerian philosophical tradition. Refuting labels that have too hastily been attached to Lezama's difficult works - those works have been dubbed "elitist" or "transcendentalist" - the text strives to establish Lezama as one of the great thinkers of historicity in the modern age. For while many critics have suggested that Latin American modernity is born via a reading and rewriting of Western discourses, Lezama's "American expression" is the site where this theory is most radically put into practice. The practice, moreover, permits one to understand not only Latin American cultural theory, but Western thought itself; indeed, Lezama's aberrant reading of the West, by its very aberrant character, reveals aspects of the Western tradition never before explored.
