    () (Profesor de la Universidad Simón Bolívar, Venezuela)


After Colonial period had been ended, Latin America faced its main problem: the construction of political system under Independence’s ideas. No elements from this recent past might be used to built a Nation-State in European way for organizing a civil society. Most of actual Latin America political problems in several countries at the beginning of 21st century, came up from the old century ones, and this fact support a reviewing of interdisciplinary foundations from “The modern and democratic Law State” are supported. This paper aim to discuss such a point of view.
