Chapter Summary

Clarifying the reasons for the difficulties demonstrated or hidden by Marx's reflection, with the aim of incorporating our continent into his analysis of non-European societies, can, in our view, produce elements very useful to a global consideration of Marxism in Latin America, insofar as his initial 'difficulty' was converted into a problematic terrain that remains controversial and insufficiently explored. The very fact that we can speak without too much risk of Marxism in Latin America even though it is extremely difficult for us to try to define what constitutes the Marxism of Latin America is nothing other than a grammatical expression of a very real historical challenge. Delving into the problematic terrain of Marx's 'perplexity' does not mean a sterile exercise in philological erudition, but rather a likely fruitful attempt -on account of its theoretical and political implications-to achieve a better-articulated expression of the exact contours of the problem.

Keywords: historical challenge; Latin America; Marxism; socialist movement
