Abstract: This essay wishes to explain the breakdown of Spanish normative conscience, settled in a mimetic use of history, recognised as magistra vitae, which offers the accredited behavioural models for the ruler at the same time that it deconstructs them from a precise conscience of their non-adaptation to the present. In this sense, Saavedra experiences in his time and in the political order the same methodical doubt Descartes experienced in the field of sciences. Nonetheless, his scepticism serves an eventual fideism that prevents him from stepping into Hobbes' constructivism and therefore commit to a modern model of sovereignty.
Este ensayo desea explicar la quiebra de la conciencia normativa hispana, asentada en un uso mimético de la historia, reconocida como magistra vita, que al tiempo que ofrece los modelos acreditados de conducta para el gobernante, los desconstruye desde una conciencia precisa de su inadaptación al presente. En este sentido, Saavedra experimenta en su tiempo y en el orden político, la misma duda metódica que Descartes en el campo de las ciencias. Sin embargo, su escepticismo está al servicio de un fideísmo final que le impide dar el paso constructivo de Hobbes y así apostar por el modelo de la soberanía moderno.
