This paper examines the challenge faced by the scientific community of ecological economy to serve as a paradigm; specifically to address the issue of sustainability from the Latin American context and different from the orthodox vision. In this discussion is essential to focus the discussion on the methodological and epistemic premises arising from economic rationality; because this is the rationality that reproduces and justifies orthodoxy. Finally, it stresses the importance of incorporating a dialogue of knowledge and ethics-historical perspective and explore various knowledges critics and alternate to the economic rationality.
