FRIGGERI, Félix Pablo. Mariátegui: Socialism and Good Living. Latinoamérica [online]. 2021, n.72, pp.81-106.  Epub Aug 23, 2021. ISSN 2448-6914.

The object of this work is to relate the proposals of José Carlos Mariátegui and that of Good Living in the search for the confluence of ways of overcoming capitalism in Latin America, both politically and epistemically. I present the characteristics of Mariátegui’s Indo-American Socialism and its relationship with indigenous praxis; the epistemic-political subject of this construction; the importance of subjectivity and spirituality in these proposals and an outline of a possible agenda for dialogue between Marxism and indigenous movements along the lines proposed by Amauta. For the construction of the work I establish a dialogue between elements of a field work carried out with the Ecuadorian Indigenous Movement and bibliographic material of Mariátegui and his interpreters. I conclude by highlighting the confluence of both proposals and their potential to enrich the analysis of the Latin American reality and feed liberating political proposals.

Keywords : Mariategui; Indo-American Socialism; Good living; Epistemic-political search; Indigenous movements; Marxism.
