Roger Chartier(1) École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (Paris) «Se habla de la desaparición del libro: yo creo que es imposible». Jorge Luis Borges, «El libro», 1978. En 1968, en un célebre ensayo, Roland Barthes asociaba el todo-poder del lector a la muerte del autor. A esta constante del nacimiento del lector, le han sucedido los diagnósticos que le han adjuntado su acta de muerte. Las constataciones, hechas a partir de las políticas editoriales, han reforzado la certeza en la «crisis» de la lectura(6). En el sector de las ciencias humanas y sociales, las encuestas estadísticas -por ejemplo la del Sindicato nacional de la edición- verifican el retroceso en los 90: sobre el número global de volúmenes vendidos, 18.2 millones en 1988; 15.4 millones en 1996; y sobre el número de ejemplares vendidos por título publicado (2200 ejemplares en 1980, y 800 en 1997).

Se espera que los presidentes de Argentina, Cristina Kirchner; Brasil, Dilma Rousseff; Uruguay, José Mujica; y Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, envíen un mensaje político exhortando a Paraguay para regresar al bloque. A ellos, se sumará Evo Morales, mandatario de Bolivia, en proceso de adhesión al bloque y con la expectiva de que se haga un repudio a los episodios vividos la semana pasada en Europa. También acudirá, como invitado especial, el presidente de Honduras, Porfirio Lobo. Paraguay se encuentra suspendido desde el año pasado, en represalia por la destitución de Fernando Lugo. Eso será en agosto, con la asunción de Horacio Cartes. Embed Este conflicto será solo uno de los puntos que debatirán los mandatarios.
