Knowledge production

This paper strives to explain the main features of what Marx himself described as his method, based on the very method and on how Marx applied it, so that researcher from the Marxist field who dedicate to Education may apply it. Thus, its subject is not knowledge itself, but the production of such knowledge understood as a particular production that composes the general one in the current socioeconomic formation. It tries to illustrate in a synthetic way what would be an application of the method to the Science of Education with regard to knowledge production in the scientific practices and schooling knowledge production.
