IBARRA MONTERROSO, Eric. The Discourse of the Possible in Consultas varias, morales y místicas (1728) by Francisco Ildefonso Segura. Lit. mex [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.2, pp.35-62. ISSN 2448-8216.

The purpose of this article is to examine and give some visibility to a moral treatise printed during the first half of the 18th century in Puebla. The article proposes that, in relation to its context, the text presents notable and eccentric aspects: it restricts and discredits several forms of authority, it seeks problematics and controversy instead of dogma, it rejects supernatural reality and defends empirical knowledge, it shares ideas based on doubt and reason. The article argues that these and other peculiarities are the consequence of a discourse built upon the ideas of possibility, hypothesis and exception, and which the article analyses mainly in the voice of the author and his relationship with books and writing.
