Abstract
Is there a democratic conscience in Latin America? It is a question that starts from a premise alien to everything that Latin Americans seek, namely, their own identity. Democracy is not a Latin American creation, but of a Western Europe represented from the V century before our era in Classical Athens, with all its ups and downs through time. There is no contradiction between a Latin American philosophy and a conception of government from the Old World, rather, it is a complement and deepening of a creation that we made ours, as ours is also the search for an identity, a conscience and a refounded and deepened democracy. In this sense, the great Latin American thinker sheds light on that Latin American democracy that really reaches everyone on a continent in search of its future.
