ROIG, Arturo Andrés. Leopoldo Zea and his Ceaseless Fight for the Unity of our America. Estud. filos. práct. hist. ideas [online]. 2006, n.8, pp.11-14. ISSN 1851-9490.

This article is about Leopoldo Zea's passion for the unity of Latin America, the one that is shared by the author of this work. This passion is shown in theses that Zea stated in successive works as well as in the cultural policies to which he gave impulse. One of his theses is the typical character of the American man's conscience, because Zea always understood his own philosophy as a way of thinking about the conscience and its positive or negative relation to history. One decisive approach to give a positive response to the question of the continental unity is to consider how that conscience analyzes itself objectively. This gives origin to another of his thesis: this is a flawed conscience, alien to any dialectics and incapable to reach successive syntheses, which also faces the risk of "starting from scratch" that Zea exposes. Another thesis refers to the relation between Latin American history and philosophy, which serves as a frame to the passion for the unity of our America.

Palabras clave : Unity in America; The American Man; Historical conscienc.
