RAWICZ, Daniela. Gino Germani: liberal socialism and scientific sociology. Andamios [online]. 2012, vol.9, n.19, pp.235-257. ISSN 2594-1917.

This article deals with the beginning of Gino Germani's career in Argentina and tries to identify the framework of experiences and debates among which his intellectual perspective on sociology and social change take place. This article posits that there is an ideological matrix in Germani linked to the European liberal socialism of his time, which puts the opposition between authoritarism and liberty as the central theme of its speech on modern societies. Along his career Germani maintains -with some modifications- this perspective to understand the most relevant social processes in Latin-American societies. A first paradigmatic example is his analysis of Peronism in Argentina.

Keywords : Liberal socialism; authoritarianism; sociology; modernity.
