Dra. Andrea Aravena ( Facultad de Ciencias Sociales, Universidad de Concepción (Concepción, Chile)

Dr. Manuel Antonio Baeza ( Facultad de Ciencias Sociales, Universidad de Concepción (Concepción, Chile)


From a dialogic perspective between philosophy, social sciences and social reality leading to a renewed epistemology, the article intends to comprehend: the phenomenon of citizen distrust with social institutions of the Chilean State, the distrust of the citizen against the current market logics such as the commodification of the social relations, and finally, the distrust between citizens in everyday spaces. The work is framed under the studies of sociology and anthropology, from the perspective of the social imaginaries and it is aimed to the deconstruction of mistrust in many central elements of social links in post-dictatorship Chile and their actual or potential relationship with discontent.

Keywords: distrust, discontent, uncertainty, social imaginaries, dictatorship.
