The philosophy of the Colombian philosopher Daniel Herrera Restrepo (1930–2017) focused on several themes: politics as the basis of philosophy, history as a condition of the possibility of thought, human rights, citizenship education. My reading seeks to characterize the relation between the thought of Herrera Restrepo and Jan Patočka (in the 60s, they met at the Husserl Archive in Leuwen). At the same time, I intend to identify the 'fundamental cores' or 'keys' to understand the philosophical proposals, theories, and alternatives developed by Daniel Herrera Restrepo.
