Summary: The article discusses the relevance of studyingthe history of philosophy in higher education, as anencouragement for the teaching of philosophy. The premise is that all philosophical exercise takes place in ahistorical and cultural context, and carries the determinations of that context, so the research must considerthe space and conditions in which the philosophicalknowledge is produced and particular theories and concepts are coined. In considering the historical context ofproduction of philosophy we find elements that allow usto find analogies between the societies that producedthese philosophical and theoretical frames and our ownCentral American societies, which may face, as those,similar conditions.
