To contextualizar the study of Gramsci in the field of the Ambient Education, it was analyzed conception of Transforming Ambient Education and the concept of nature in the perspectives of the main theoreticians of liberalism and the marxism. The research searched to present the no-dogmatic vision of the gramscian marxism, accumulating of stocks the concepts of freedom, history, dialectic, civil society and politics. The concept of nature in Gramsci crossed great epistemologics transformations and politics, passing for a liberal and idealistic vision during youth, under influence of Benedetto Croce, until the approach with the marxism in the maturity. Between years 1932 and 1933, the nature concept reaches the more advanced dialetic content, completing the purification of the idealistic elements. The considerations contained in this study admit to include Gramsci in the group of the classic authors who must be consulted as base for the socie-ambient studies.
