Ernesto Che Guevara, Dispositions, and Education for Transnational Social Justice

Ernesto Che Guevara, Dispositions, and Education for Transnational Social Justice

(p.302) 18 Ernesto Che Guevara, Dispositions, and Education for Transnational Social Justice
Cuba in a Global Context

John D. Holst

University Press of Florida

The theory and practice of Ernesto Che Guevara exemplifies the nexus of dispositions and a broadly conceived notion of education within and beyond formal schooling. A revolutionary, Guevara was also a pedagogue much interested in promoting specific dispositions in youth and in the Cuban population as a whole. Dispositions are at the heart of his idea of creating the new man and woman (el hombre nuevo). They would be of a qualitatively new nature because of the “values, commitments, and professional ethic” that would guide their actions in society. We live in different times than Guevara, but the injustices he struggled against are still with us, and his goal of creating human beings to create and take advantage of a democratic, participatory, and cooperative society are still before us. Transnational social justice seems less like a politically charged phrase and more like a burning necessity.
