GOERGEN, Pedro. Between Knowledge and truth: the challenging dilemma of contemporary education. Espac. blanco, Ser. indagaciones [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.2, pp.1-10. ISSN 1515-9485.

The essay analyses the relationship between education and the market today. It is a reality that is becoming stronger and more evident, with a decisive influence on directions, senses and pedagogical practices. Increasingly education is functionalized in the sense of becoming a practice aimed at meeting the interests and objectives of the market and not the training of people as autonomous and free human beings. The text defends the view that education, although it should prepare people for the professional exercise, should have, as fundamental responsibility, the integral education of the people, involving the rational, ethical and aesthetic dimensions. The aim of the text is therefore to draw the attention of the reader to the risk of pedagogical reductionism that is only concerned with preparing young people for the labor market, whose interests are permeated by productivism, competitiveness, monetarism and widespread competition between people. Such a tendency reduces and disqualifies any transcendent power of an ethical nature that values the setting of rights and duties among human beings focused on the common good, the highest goal of education.

Palabras clave : Education and market, knowledge and truth, human education.
