Salazar Bondy's early thinking was influenced by phenomenology and existentialism. Analytic philosophy increasingly influenced his work in the 1960s. His view of philosophy in Latin America is unusual because he rejected the idea that Latin America has produced authentic philosophical traditions, and blamed imperialist domination for this void. Although many critiqued his negation of Latin American philosophy, Salazar Bondy believed that underdevelopment effectively prevented philosophizing.
