Miguel Alvarado Borgono*

This article argues that Palacios proposes the essential elements for a systematical philosophical anthropology, under the influence of his time, mainly evolutionism and racism, but different while trying to give a wide perspective of racial mix as the result of cultural contamination by contact and the sociocultural mutation as a result. Raza Chilena is a book that contains a holistic hypothesis that link all forms of science, history, biology, sociology, anthropology and linguistics available in the 19th century Chile.
