THE CONCEPT OF BEING HUMAN IN EDUCATOR'S FORMATION: A CONTRIBUTION OF MARXIAN THEORY
Keywords:human being, educator training, ontology, Marx
The purpose of this article is to deconstruct the thesis that the teacher is fully aware of the human being's ontology because his actions are oriented towards his training. For, when a teacher is asked what the human being is, the answers range from an incomplete sentence such as “the human being is …” to abstract, metaphysical, religious answers, in common sense, without any reasoning that makes explicit a certain conception of the human being as a species. Based on this unexplained assumption, educators continue to educate children, adolescents, youth and adults worldwide, in a direction in which human attributes are neither references nor telos. This article does not intend to explain the totality of human attributes, but to explain those present in Marx's thought (conscience, work, universality, sociability and freedom), translating them into the educational field.
