Abstract

This essay presents the development of thinking of the Colombian sociologist and social critic Orlando Fals Borda in three major stages: the establishment of a scientific sociology, the assertion of a committed sociology and the use of knowledge for social transformation. A critical balance of the achievements and constraints of his political positions is also made.
