ABSTRACT
In this article I propose a two moment characterization of the trajectory of Latin American critical thought. In the first, I recognize the shift form thought to theory, and the characteristic features that paradigms of self-reflection generate. The second moment is consecuence of the changes that military dictatorships involved for social reflection in the region. This new stage is characterized by the centrality of decolonial perspective. I reviewed the proposed pattern of modern-colonial domination in the light of new trends in critical thinking. Finally I note the importance of social movements as sources of knowledge.
