"La llamada de la tribu" is an intellectual autobiography by Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa. The work is not distinguished by the author’s experiences, but rather by the literature that shaped his way of thinking and seeing the world over the course of fifty years. The work details his roadmap of liberal thinkers that facilitated the development of a new set of ideas after the great ideological disappointment and disenchantment with the Cuban Revolution and Jean-Paul Sartre, who formed a foundational part of his intellectual life in his youth. In this text, he particularly examines the writers Adam Smith, Jose Ortega y Gasset, Friedrich Hayek, Karl Popper, Raymond Aron, Isaiah Berlin, and Jean-Fraçois Revel.
