Abstract

We propose to give an account of the creation and operation of the Marxist Research Institute promoted by the Communist Party of Chile in 1967. From interviews with protagonists of said organization and the consultation of various secondary printed sources, we expose the main areas of its activity, its main aspects of political-ideological attention and, finally, the importance it had in the Chilean context in the years before and after the triumph of the Popular Unity, in 1970. In general, we are interested in taking steps in order to propose a historical interpretation of the intellectual dimension — in its ideas, debates and characters — that expressed the struggle and trajectory of the Chilean left during the 20th century, a matter still in the making in our context historiographic. In this sense, IDIM was a significant experience that deserves current attention, and this not only because of the specific antecedents of this initiative, but, especially, because of the contrast that we can make today with respect to the eidetic and intellectual demands that today they are imposed on this sector of Chilean politics.
