The article aims at exploring the importance of José Martí’s thinking for pedagogy, through the lens of praxis.
A multi-fold analysis is conducted: first, an analysis of the narrative of José Martí in regard to the development of his consciousness and his role in changing the historical trajectory of Cuba; second, an analysis of Martí’s political praxis in regard to engagement with the geopolitical semiotic field and mobilizing Cuban cultural communities for the Cuban War of Independence.
This research yields a theoretical analysis of semiotics to explicate these meaningful constructs and explain Martí’s ways of signification, further extrapolating the relations of Marti’s narrative and the development of Cuban political agency.
Focusing the individual’s education from the perspective of José Martí’s pedagogy is assumed as royal road. José Martí was not only a writer, Cuban revolutionary man, and a smart teacher; but a guiding light to universal education as the upmost expression of emancipation, counter-hegemony and community, bio metaphysical consciousness.
