What to Do? Fundamentals for the Argentine Renaissance

What to Do? Fundamentals for the Argentine Renaissance

Synopsis

The book aims at acting on the present as a way of escaping from the eternal curse that seems to have descended upon Argentina.

The text forces readers to snap out of their lethargy, leaving aside futile complaints and clichés that are repeated without thinking. The language used by the author proves to be bright and frightening at the same time. It generates an active dialogue that dissolves passivity.

This book opens a new line which, instead of focusing on diagnosis and criticism, invites readers to concentrate on proposals. It encourages fruitful controversy, creative imagination, and fundamental solutions.

Its ardent pages –full of testimony, irony and passion- urge readers to overcome prejudices, fear, and intellectual poverty. The author is convinced that a renaissance is possible if opinion-makers, leaders, and the social capital of people commit themselves to revise archaic ideas so as to attain a definite correction of the uncertain direction that has dominated the course of the country until the present.
