The following article describes the evolution of three generations of Chilean criminal law professors, from 1925 to1970. The sources and influences of each generation, and how they influence subsequent generations, are explained. Then, the conditions that influenced the emergence of a large number of new criminal law scholars of the 1955-1970 generation, known as the New Chilean Dogmatic, and their participation in the dispute between the "neoclassical system" and the "theory of final action, are established. The article concludes by examining the current relevance of the New Chilean Dogmatics contributions and the effects of the 1973 coup in its further development.
