LOPEZ-CRUZ, Yenisey  and  DUANY-DESTRADE, Lídice. Armando Hart and his methodological keys for the teaching of marxism. Sophia [online]. 2023, n.35, pp.281-302. ISSN 1390-8626.

Armando Hart Dávalos was among the intellectuals who recognized the validity of Marxism when the world was talking about its “crisis”. He made assessments about the mistakes made in the assumption of this theory. He also confirmed its usefulness to form in the subjects cultural tools that enable critical thinking and the ability to question the contemporary world. Its reflections are valid for interpreting and transforming the complex social scenarios that characterize reality. In spite of being distinguished as one of the most lucid Marxists, there are not many studies about his reflections. Thus, the present work aims to reveal the methodological keys that are identified in his thought. These keys are necessary for the interpretation and use of Marxism as an educational resource to train the man in charge of changing his context. The results obtained point out as essential keys: the recognition of the anti-dogmatic essence of Marxism, electivism as a theoretical-methodological tool for thinking and doing political praxis, the determining role of material production, without disdaining the active role of the subjective aspect, the importance of spiritual life as an essential theme of political life, the relationship between culture and politics, and the recognition of the relative nature of all knowledge associated with political and social processes.
