    Sin lugar a dudas, uno de los mayores preceptos que nos condicionan como fundantesde un proyecto humano, es el pensamiento. Sin equivocarnos, podemosdecir que ello diferencia a los entes racionales de los animales, ya que comoreconocía el filósofo Cassirer: entre cosas y animales hay una relación directa, entanto que entre los individuos y las cosas media el símbolo2, el cual nosotros interpretamoscomo la palabra. Ya los griegos, fundadores del pensamiento racional enoccidente, reconocían en ella un poder que sobrepasaba lo puramente interno paraenmarcarse en lo social y lo político, es decir, que se reconocía una intima relaciónentre la psique del individuo y su condición de ente grupal. En este punto existeuna correlatividad básica entre el querer y el actuar, entre el acto y la potencia,al decir del mismo Aristóteles. Somos individuos en la medida en que pensamos,con la potencialidad de que nuestras ideas crucen los límites puramente internosdel propio ego, para fundarse como precepto de una necesidad que se quiere suplir,y para lo cual nos es necesaria la comunidad.
