MERCADANTE, Marilu  y  CAVALARI, Rosa Maria Feiteiro. Memories of old teachers: nature and the nature/society relationship. Ciênc. educ. (Bauru) [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.3, pp.721-736. ISSN 1516-7313.

This research has the objective to identify from the remembrances of old teachers the relation between their  conceptions of the natural world and the nature of society. The old teachers are from the state public schools from a city in the county of São Paulo in 60's and 70's. It was found from reading the narratives, that the teachers describe nature with different conceptions. Looking at the nature/ society relationship, it is noticeable that a conflicted relation is established between the man and nature. It can be affirmed, in general, that man was presented as the one who destroys nature, being characterized by the teachers as bad and ignorant. Trying to understand how nature and its relationship to society are present in the remembrances of these masters can help us currently to build new ways of relating nature and society.
