Periklis Pavlidis

Abstract


In this article, I am examining the ideas of Marx and Engels on the role of education in the communist transformation of society and also the understanding of polytechnical education by some notable Soviet thinkers, such as Krupskaya, Lunacharsky, Blonsky, Vygotsky and Makarenko, who played a significant role in the formation of the Soviet pedagogical theory and educational policy during the first two decades of the USSR.

 

Keywords: Makarenko, Marxist pedagogy, polytechnicalism, Soviet education
