From Art to Politics: Octavio Paz and the Pursuit of Freedom (Culture and Politics Series)
- Publish Date: 2001-11-16
- Binding: Paperback
- Author: Yvon Grenier
This book offers an analysis of Paz's political thought, arguing that it is rooted in two separate and often antagonistic traditions, Liberalism and Romanticism. Grenier shows that Paz's political thought is best approached not so much by looking at the specific positions Paz took in the issues of his day, but rather by uncovering the core values at the heart of Paz's political philosophy. From Art to Politics gives not only a better understanding of Paz's thought, but also a discussion of the political culture and democratization of Mexico.
