VILLEGAS, Karla. From the question of "being" to the philosophy of production: The role of aesthetics in the work of Enrique Dussel. Estud. filos. práct. hist. ideas [online]. 2007, n.9, pp. 161-168. ISSN 1851-9490.
We focus on the aesthetics issues occurring in Enrique Dussel's work, a subject not sufficiently explored by other studies. Aesthetics holds a central place in his writings dealing with subjects such as its ontological character, an original proposal regarding design, and the problems related to the philosophy of poiesis. We took three of his key texts: the essay "Aesthetics and being" published in 1969; "The question of a general model in a design process", of 1977, and his work "Philosophy of production" published in Colombia in 1984. Each of these writings represents a clue in the development of his thinking.
