For eleven days, some of the greatest philosophers of the world from Europe, the United States of America and Latin America participated and engaged in philosophical debates. Seventy years later, we acknowledge many of those participants as influential representatives of the contemporary philosophical thinking in the entire Western world. This recognition of their worth entails the need to reenact several of their presentations with the aim of disseminating their thinking and awakening a vocation in the young who are interested in philosophy as critical consciousness.
The mission of a state-run University as a miniature democracy implies not only to train the young and to conduct research to contribute to national technological and scientific development, but also to recover the patrimony and to preserve the national, Latin American and universal culture.
"If the History of mankind is a limited series of decisive instants, there is no doubt that a great part of the decisions on what we want to be in the future will depend on the facts that we are currently witnessing. In this connection, there should not be a divorce between thought and action, while society and men are facing the deepest crisis of values they have ever experienced in their evolution"
Juan Domingo Perón
"Philosophy must solve the problems that the historical process poses in its development – from one thought to another (…). Therefore, the philosophical thought is not conceived as a development — from one thought to another — but as a thought of historical reality"
"Truth is constructed on a daily basis through history"
Vicente Lombardo Toledano
