Keywords/Abstract
In this essay we propose to discuss paths taken upon the educational ideal of citizenship, (albeit not being employed these specific terms) pedagogical debate and thought occurring in Portugal in the latter part of the nineteen sixties, and throughout the nineteen seventies. This happening in the context of a country dominated by the final breaths of a dying dictatorship, along with the political turmoil in and surrounding the construction of a democratic society; thus implying a necessity for educating the Portuguese people in exercising their role as citizens in a conscientious manner. The same was implied in terms of their having a critical and active participation in social affairs.
