Chapter Summary

Given that Marx considered Latin America from the perspective of its supposed or real function in putting the brakes on the Spanish Revolution or as a hinterland of mounting Bonapartism, his perspective was strongly refracted by an adverse political judgement; one expressed very clearly in his text on Bolivar. The fact that, starting from a recognition of a perspective that transformed into a political prejudice, we can, therefore, trace to what point this prejudice was nurtured by his ideological spirit, theoretical conceptions and ideas originating in his ideological and cultural formation, does not invalidate the need to follow a line of research in accordance with the sense of Marx's oeuvre itself.

Keywords: Bolivar; Latin America; Marx
