Absences and emergences: production of knowledge and social transformation

Rosana de Lima Soares


The book presents three articles written from the conferences that Boaventura de Sousa Santos performed at the University of Buenos Aires – Social Sciences Faculty. The issues adressed on each chapter concern topics related to ethics and politics in contemporary societies, as well as the social relations implied on these themes. The growning inequalities among developed and third world countries, as well as local, regional and global relations are presented by the author in order to renew critical theory and to plunge into the political discussion through knowledge production and dissemination.
