This essay reviews, from considering certain topics set by the author, though guided by some of the specific conditions accepted by Jafari (2005) that led to the evolution and the development of the knowledge on tourism, the major progress in the construction of knowledge of tourism made from Argentina and framed in the universal context. It starts from the idea of thinking about knowledge from a holistic and not fragmented. To this end, the process of teaching and learning, research, production of theses, publications and specialized texts, the emergence of academic and research groups, the contributions of organizations and academic meetings can be considered. In order to contextualize universal progress, it raises the criticism that still persist in Argentina, developed its progress, and ends by outlining some inputs on where it should continue the evolve towards this construction discipline to result in a period exceeded.
