This article is a tribute that historicizes the initial impact and reception of Xavier Albo’s foundational ideas in the establishment of social sciences in Bolivia. The author recalls Albó’s academic interest in linguistics and ethnographic research and situates his influence in the context of the 1960s and 1970s socio-political upheavals. He also sums up the setting to understand an early need to establish CIPCA, today a respected research center that has become a point of reference in the social sciences.
