Description:This paper analyses the speeches given by former president of Costa Rica José María Figueres Olsen on May 1st in front of the Legislative Assembly in order to understand his point of view regarding the transformation of the State. A Critical Discourse Analysis was conducted to achieve the objective. Strategies of delegitimizing, legitimizing, and covering up related to defining the “be” and the “must be” of the State expressed by him were shown. Toulmin's Argument Model was also used to demonstrate the generic definition of State.
