Please this too..... just to confirm
Epistemico = epistemic?
|"epistemic" exists (philosophy)|
With regards to "macondismo", I think Oso's advice is fine for someone familiar with the critical literature of García Márquez. I'd also suggest "the Macondo syndrome" (perhaps with a little explanation).

"Macondismo" remains in Spanish
Un ejemplo para usted:
"The rise and consolidation of a specifically cultural sociology in the 1980s, though, involves a critique of both anthropology (which in extreme cases is viewed as the study of backwardness) and of what one eminent sociologist, referring to García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, calls "macondismo," namely the critique of modernity on the basis of the "reenchantment" of the (Latin American) world and other values inimical to the instrumental rationality of Western modernization. At the same time, influential researchers like Néstor García Canclini have pointed out the limitations of an exclusively sociological approach to modern culture and have developed an interdisciplinary perspective that emphasizes the hybrid (as opposed to segmented) nature of cultural formations in contemporary Latin America."
