Since the primrdios of the development of the human sort is visible to find some form of education, of beginning in the daily pay-history characterized for the rude force in intention to get feeding, to dispute for housing and other accessories eminently of practical character. However, to the few with the development of the cognition and the conquest of some elements as the domination of the fire, and the confection of fine utensils a new phase in the evolution of the species of adaptativo process of the life has beginning inside. Therefore, if the education is a evolutivo process, the evolution of the humanity entirely is fit inside of this process, having thus evidenced the complexity of the history of the humanity and its education. In this perspective, it is possible to see the education as the foundation of the human development and exerts a basic paper how much to the psicossocial construction, beyond the inclusion of the individual to the social environment. Being thus, it is impossible to find peoples destitute of the event of the education, therefore if in case that this happened, we would not make history and nor culture. Some thinkers throughout history had looked for to understand the education, thus creating several philosophical and even though psychological systems in the attempt to understand the human being.
In Greece, especially in the Athenian societies at the time of Plato, it searched the phenomenon of the education in the formation of the citizen, in the attempt to understand the man in its totality, either physical, psychic and philosophical it. Recently, some thinkers as Piaget, Pablo Freire and others had looked for to explain the dynamic education as something in which he makes with that the man has left itself exactly and produces knowledge. Being thus, we can delineate the education as an act to inside teach and to learn of a process of learning of the man in all its life.
