Ideologia pós-moderna e educação física: uma análise teórico-crítica

by de Souza, Luís César

Abstract (Summary)
We proposed at this text to discuss the post-modern ideology as a result of the contradictions of the contemporaneous industrial society of capitalist production, and how the education is inserted on this context, and, mainly, to analyze the influence of this ideology at the physical education (based on a negative and critical theory of the established society). In that sense, this text is characterized by the theoretical-philosophical debate, which we resort to the bibliographic research in order to understand the reasons that lead the post-modern ideology to announce the crisis of the principles and values constructed along the modernity. With an idea of crisis, the post-modern ideology refuses the theories that intend to understand the reality since the dialectical relation between universality and particularity, besides to despise the historical questions that allow us to comprehend the development of the productive forces and the production relations at the industrial society as factual action of the man. We run over to some concepts of Marx and Marcuse ? that wanted to understand critically the industrial society and the capitalism of their time -, important elements to the reflection of the contemporaneous society, with the purpose of justifying that the actual society ?is not?, but ?it is?, at a development phase that has ancient historical bases. Based on the perspective of these authors, we returned to the history to analyze the education at the industrial society context, since the ample development of the sciences and technology, making us to distrust about the post-modern conception of the education and the curriculum. We also analyzed the relation of the physical education to the industrial society development, since the requirements to the new man, which surged with the approaches of the burgher society of capitalist production, until the contemporaneous conflicts. We verified that the influence of the post-modern ideology at the physical education is not generalized, although there is an approval about the post-structuralists announcements that it is called linguistic rotation. We presented the mistakes of these conceptions because, according to their analyses, the material base responsible for the social relations is distrusted. At last, we comprehended that we are challenged to maintain the current of the principles that intend to emancipate the situation subject of exploration and minority. To the physical education, as it is implicated on the formative process, we must to promote constantly a critic to the contradictions of the industrial society of capitalist production and of the discourses that, when they are disrespected, they constitute on an ideology.
