Abstract

LOUREIRO, Carlos Frederico B.; TREIN, Eunice; TOZONI-REIS, Marília Freitas de Campos  and  NOVICKI, Victor. Marxist theory's contributions to the critical environmental education. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.77, pp. 81-97. ISSN 0101-3262.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622009000100006.

This article presents some of the principal contributions of the Marxist theory for the environmental education, considering that the educative practice in Brazil was constituted in a dialog with pedagogic conceptions and authors inserted in this field. We begin with a brief contextualization of the critical production (Marxist or not) and the theoretical disputes in environmental education field. Straight after, we discus about the influence and the appropriation of the critical pedagogies and of the structuring concepts of Marxian conception of education in the theoretical-methodological formulation in environmental education. As a sum and conclusion, we argue about the importance of the dialectical historical materialism in the contemporary environmental discussions, critically thinking about how it is presented in this context and particularly in environmental education.

Keywords : Marxist theory; Critical pedagogies; Dialectical historical materialism; Environmental education.
