Abstract

In their resistance, struggles, and construction of life alternatives, women and men also produce/reproduce practical and theoretical knowledge. Reflecting critically on the reality in which they live, they become aware of the injustices of gender, class, and race, among others. This gives rise to pedagogical practices that shape a proposal of liberation while constituting a central and irreplaceable component of the transformation-liberation process. This practical pedagogy/pedagogical practice is revolutionary; it strengthens the construction and development of subjectivity and (individual, sector-collective) political consciousness in workers, original indigenous people, popular sectors, rural communities, etc., contributing to the convergence and articulation of one collective plural subject in all things local, regional, continental, and global. Recognizing this pedagogy’s centrality in the processes of social change is vital for planning comprehensive action in politics, culture, ideology or epistemology. That is the focus of this paper’s reflections.
