GODOY, Elenilton Vieira  e  SANTOS, Vinício de Macedo. Um olhar sobre a cultura. Educ. Rev. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.03, pp.15-41. ISSN 0102-4698.

This article aims to discuss multiple cultural meanings as well as the necessity for taking culture into account among others to reflect on issues related to such ideas as power, resistance and politics, which do not originate from curriculum theories rather than drawn on by them. The importance of culture is to be highlighted under discussion of contemporaneity issues based on the premise that culture comprises of significance systems which provide a sense of meaning for human actions, therefore, they might be ours or otherwise. It can, thus, be inferred that any social action is also cultural and that, consequently, social practices that express, communicate and produce meaning are discursive practices of significance. Ideas of authors who investigate the thematic curriculum are borrowed to support the relevance of culture in discussions centered on education, school, course units, relations of power, resistance and politics.

Palavras-chave : Practices of Signification; Culture; Curriculum; Power.
