VIEYRA BAHENA, Pedro. The Failed Institutionalization of Individualism in Mexico from 1940 to 1970. Sociológica (Méx.) [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.94, pp.269-301. ISSN 2007-8358.

This article analyzes the effects that Mexican state intervention in the economy, politics, and society between 1940 and 1970 had on the emergence of some of the mechanisms necessary for the institutionalization of modern individualism. The latter is understood as individual development configured through dignity, autonomy, privacy, intimacy, and self-perfecting activity. The author also details how in this period, some sectors of the middle and popular strata of society sought to consolidate the main dimensions of this with regard to the institutional context, even though the political and economic specificities of Mexico made it impossible to fully develop individuality, and therefore led to a precarious individualism reduced to modest personal aspirations.

Palavras-chave : individualism; Mexico; institutionalization; state; dignity.
