Abstract | Full Text

This article shows how the ideals of Democracy, Republicanism, Socialism or Liberalism take social body in modernity as well as how reformist principles find in university students a social subject that upholds such principles. The students rebellion that caused the events in Córdoba was the convergence of an Argentina that was entering the modern world and a university refusing to change. The movement did not exhaust within the Argentine University of Córdoba but it expanded to build a political program proposing a new university to construct a new society. Undoubtedly, reformism became an identity and a utopia of alternative thinking in Latin America.
