Chapter Summary

In Diálogos completos, Monseñor Laguna and Marcos Aguinis stress to their readers that Argentina's readiness to receive an inter-religious dialogue speaks to the possibility of Argentina achieving democracy, and thereby of moving beyond a state of psychosocial immaturity. The dialogue between Aguinis the Jew and Laguna the Catholic serves as both an invitation and a model for the public to engage in conversation in spite of their differences. This chapter discusses about the usefulness of Aguinis's choice in Monseñor Laguna as a partner in dialogue. It contextualizes Aguinis's work within the company of other writers and renowned intellectuals in Latin America who previously adopted the genre of dialogue. The chapter provides an analysis of how Aguinis's goals, pursued within his dialogues with Laguna, speak to his larger aim of creating inclusive democracy through literature. It addresses the global message within the local work.
