Abstract

This paper develops a hypothesis of the economist, Albert Hirschman in 'The Rhetoric of Reaction, Perversity, Futility, Jeopardy' (Harvard, 1991) regarding the history of the independence of Colombia. The Rhetoric of Independence extended the geographical worldview of the people of Spanish American. Finally, the paper develops a dispute with the explanations given by the conventional Colombian historiography.
