Dilemmas of Modernity

This chapter develops a framework through which the constitution of Bolivia through law can be understood, both analytically and through reference to certain key moments in this intellectual-historical process. It discusses the problem of law as an object of study; how the study of law in Bolivia is the study of ideas in history; and the anthropology of law as critical intellectual history. It broadly describes the emergence of liberal Bolivia and presents several arguments about the importance of Bolivia's legal-ideological foundations. The chapter concludes by emphasizing some points about how patterns of intention shape social practice in Bolivia and why it is essential to foreground the chapters that follow within this analytical framework.

Keywords:   Bolivia, framework, constitution, law, anthropology, liberalism, social practice
