AbstractThe Mexican Revolution was a violent and complex event which modern scholars still struggle to fully understand. Beginning in 1910, the civil strife which led to the eventual consolidat~on of the Revolution in the 192o·a was not without its share of heroes and villains. Among those individuals who played both roles was Ricardo Florea Mag6n. Prior to the overthrow of Porfirio D!az in 1910, Ricardo Flores Mason was a student radical who outspokenly denounced the corruption of Mexico's Federal government. By the time of his death in 1922, the tenacious dissident was an affirmed anarchist. Considered a hero by some, Flores Magbn was more often treated as a criminal by the authorities in both the United States and Mexico. A great deal has been written about both Ricardo Flores Magbn and his role in the Mexican Revolution. However, the origins of his philosophy and the ultimate impact of his ideology on Mexico's intellectual landscape have not been adequately explored. The following thesis examines the evolution of Ricardo Flores Mag~n·s anarchist ideology and demonstrates the interconnectedness between this philosophy and the indigenous cultures of rural Mexico.
