BAGNAT LASCARAY, Daniel Alfredo. Aproximación a la obra y la figura intelectual de Juan Benigar desde una perspectiva contemporánea. Cuad.Sur, Let. [online]. 2010, n.40, pp. 29-52. ISSN 1668-7426.

This paper proposes an approach to the intellectual figure of Juan Benigar and some aspects of his work which, from a modern perspective, establish a critical position against the epistemological structure of modernity (Bhabha, 2002). On this tour it is interesting to note the position of this author regarding the idea of otherness and diversity in its different aspects, ethnic, linguistic and cultural, taking into account not only the textual aspects of his production but also the activity that as an intellectual -in the sense given by Said (1996) to such category-, Benigar performs in Northern Patagonia, more particularly in the Comahue region and the Andes mountain's region of the Province of Neuquén, with special attention to relations between Western and mapuce cultures. In this way, I attempt here to highlight the current and universal value that not only from the literary and linguistic planes, but also theoretical-epistemological and (multi) cultural, present both Benigar's work and intellectual figure, in connection with an identity construction whose multiple processes "are produced in the articulation of cultural differences that provide the groundwork for developing identity strategies" (Bhabha, 2002:18).

Palavras-chave : Representations of the intellectual; Criticism of modernity; Patagonian identity.
