Negación del Ser para el Reconocimiento del otro

Translated title of the contribution: Denial of Being for the Recognition of the other

Edison Francisco Higuera Aguirre

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article proposes the negation of being as a starting point for recognition of the Other. The author defines ontology and gives an overview of its history. He then explains the ambiguity and evasiveness that surrounds the terms being and Ontology today. He further points out the incompatibility of the answers given by traditional Ontology in the face of the paradigm shift. He holds that an “Ontology” of education is to reflect on concrete educational acts, thus abandoning abstract reflection on Being and focusing on reflection on the Other.
