DUPRE, Eduardo Hodge. Domingo Faustino Sarmiento: his travels, modernity and apologism to North American Federalism. Almanack [online]. 2018, n.19, pp.41-78. ISSN 2236-4633.

The following work analyses the influence of the United States in the political thought of the argentine Domingo Faustino Sarmiento. The objective is to demonstrate that his travel through that country, begun in 1847, were decisive in the configuration of his federal approaches. Sarmiento’s apologies for the North American model reached such dimensions that he even maintained the Argentine provinces would achieve the so longed-for modernity, if they were able to abide by the same system.

Keywords : Domingo F; Sarmiento; federalism; history of ideas; Argentine nineteenth century; political thought.
