In 1969 it is pointed out the need of the intellectual to become independent of society to which he belongs to, in order to be able to criticize and generate doubts about it. Likewise, he proposes Democracy as moral. His job as an intellectual in Franco and post-Franco period became fundamental. He understood the events on February 23rd 1981 as the consolidation of Spanish democracy.
