BETWEEN THE PROMETHEAN AND THE DIONYSIAN: THE MORAL DISCOURSE OF THE CHILEAN ANARCHIST AT THE BEGINNING OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. Cuadernos de Historia [online]. 2011, n.34, pp. 127-154.

In the following article there is approached the moral speech of the Chilean anarchists of beginning of the 20th century concerning the consumption of alcohol and the loving practices from the analytical categories of the French sociologist Michael Maffesoli. It is postulated that the anarchistic speech passed indistinctly among the "promethean theory" and the "Dionysian thing", since that on one hand, the nonconformist press repudiated the consumption of alcohol, while, it was allowing the reproduction of the political domination and economic subjugation, on the other hand, it bet for antagonistic formulae of love on the traditional ones, the "free love ", without juridical ties, not religious.
