Peuser House

As well as a start in August of 1857, preceded by the inclusion of the railway in the Constitution of 1853, there are a number of milestones that will enable us to better visualize the role that been playing the railways in argentina evolution since then. In 1977, the magazine SUMMA, a publication dedicated to the architecture of the city of Buenos Aires, public an interesting chronology, which helped us to further refinements, where railway Ephemerides was linked to the national and even global events. It is our opinion, that as well as the national and even world events influenced on the railway development (by others embedded as a component in the transport system), own railway activity was generating own phenomena and influencing on their specific realities surrounding, which has given rise to situations which in our judgement have not finished that perceive in all their scopes. Although the monographic character of this message, obviously limits the analysis, can not mention the companion, almost hidden from the railway, which was the Telegraph. Before the Internet phenomenon today, was revalued that nearly silent railway companion, although it is worth commenting that to Juan Bautista Alberdi, said accompaniment do not pass unnoticed, taking into account the poetry which he dedicated them both.

Between the map Martin de Moussy, developed for the exhibition in Paris in 1870 and 1913 Peuser House map, one can have a panoramic view of the explosive development of the railway network in that time. In the map of Moussy, is the railway reaching Maipu and Chivilcoy. Already in the map of Peuser, are nearly 33,000 miles of track, comprising at least the most important part of the network. It is more or less known than starting from the beginning of the first world war, there was a slowdown in the evolution of the red(llego a mediados de los 40 a los 45.000 kilometros).

Paul Ricoeur

Like Hannah Arendt, Canadian philosopher says that space in common is a condition for the Constitution of the self. That space is defined by Taylor as a network of dialogue (Taylor, 2000, 36), in which unite the perspectives of all without involving each to lose their identity, but that it is condition to become someone and have an identity. Identity, in this regard, calls for the recognition. On the other hand, identity, what one is, adds nothing to the self-understanding if this is not conceived as what one has come to be: my self-understanding necessarily have temporary depth incorporates a narrative (Taylor, 2000, 50). Itself, raised in these terms, is apprehended in the perspective of a life story that has come to be, that has unfolded. But the sense of where it is going should include also here, that is, the values as principles which guide the action horizon. This is the orientation of itself that only comes to be coherent in a narrative.

As you can be seen in what has been said, the objective is to locate itself in a context in which the others, the situation and the horizon of action are undeniable part of what one is. According to Charles Taylor, a same if abstracted from its vital context is to reduce it to just one aspect: self-awareness. (Cf. Taylor, 2000, 49) And this, in the strict sense, is something that we will never find in the world. Hence the problem that Hume we inherited and that as such, even in our time, remains a puzzlement. Ricoeur and the self as interlaced in the narratives of the other Paul Ricoeur It proposes that the agent is revealed to us in the question by the who.
