“An Essay on Revolution” is based on the idea of creating a revolution in the form of an essay, establishing a ‘guide’ model for its execution. As an illustrative example, we resorted to the events initiated by the university students in May 1968 in Paris. It remains as a hypothetical guide for a future revolution. This essay reflects our interpretation on the events and the critical position towards the contents we had access to. It is a personal and dynamic interpretation in accordance with history.
