View Interview (in English)

Abstract

In this interview Peter McLaren clearly expresses his return to the Marxist roots, to a theory with a strategic centrality. After a period of incursions through the field of leftist post-modernism and post-structuralism, McLaren argues today that there are insuperable limitations in these approaches and criticizes the academic sycophants and their positions on these perspectives. To him, the return to the Marxist theory, as a way of both understanding and transforming social reality, is a natural process. However, McLaren stresses that Marxism should not be seen as a religion, emphasizing that he does not want to have anything to do with an inflexible perspective.
