BENNASAR GARCIA, Miguel Israel  and  REYES RODRIGUEZ, Alixon David. The Latin American university in its labyrinth: transition from modernity to transmodernity and complex thinking. Acad. (Asunción) [online]. 2022, vol.9, n.2, pp.225-240. ISSN 2414-8938.

This paper reflects on the emergence of the Latin American university and its evolutionary process, contextualizing epochs that place modernity, postmodernity and transmodernity, being transversal the logic of co-optation and intellectual dependence to a dominant Euro-Western 'civilizing' project. For this purpose, a documentary methodology of essayistic-reflexive cut was used, concluding that each of these cultural and political movements has had and still has a relevant impact on the processes of generation and production of knowledge, and on the foci of construction of society. Each of the movements presented has as a focus of attention the assumption of knowledge from the particularity, however, the final bet of this work points to the complex thought conceived as the dynamizing, multidimensional and multifactorial axis of a new vision of university as an institution at the social, political, technical, economic and cultural service of a society.

Keywords : University; complexity; modernity; postmodernity; transdmodernity.
