El negro y la " raza cósmica " de José Vasconcelos (1925)

Abstract : In La Raza cósmica (1925), the ideologist and politician José Vasconcelos, seduced by the theory of the evolution, pleads for the upheaval of a new race from the three roots (indian, european, african) which are intermixing them in the New World. Nevertheless, he rejects the idea of natural selection, for his negative consequences, leaning to an utopian proposition linked with the Platon’s thinking for whom the beautiful brings to the goodness – concept rejuvenated by Schopenhauer ‒, the vital movement of Bergson and the segregation who procreates an “elite” in the opinion of Teilhard de Chardin. The Vasconcelos’ discourse leads to a vision that does not differentiate much from this of Gobineau in as much as the black, marked by the colonial stigmas, must abandon his monstrosity in the melting pot, to offer his physical strength to the superiority of the white spirit.
