Newton Duarte ( graduated in Pedagogy in 1985, the last year of the most violent dictatorship in Brazilian history. Since his undergraduate course he has been engaged in educational movements in defense of public and democratic education in Brazil. In 1992, Duarte had his PhD dissertation approved by the Faculty of Education at University of Campinas (UNICAMP). He works as Full Professor in the Faculty of Sciences and Languages at University of Sao Paulo State (UNESP), campus of Araraquara. His main field of teaching and research is foundations of education, with emphasis in the intersections between philosophy, psychology and pedagogy. Based in Marxist authors like Georg Lukács, Karel Kosik, Antonio Gramsci and Lev Vygotsky among others, Duarte has been developing philosophical studies on a conception of school education as mediation, in the development of individuals, between the everyday life and the historical human experience synthetized in art, philosophy and sciences (natural and social). From this perspective, Duarte has analyzed the connections between the neoliberal/post-modern ideological configuration of social realities and the mainstream educational thought. He was visiting scholar at Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto, Canada, in 2002-2003, at the Centre for Social and Political Thought at University of Sussex in Brighton, U.K., in 2011-2012 and at the Institute for the Humanities at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada in 2019-2020.
