ROSA, Leandro Amorim  and  SILVA, Ana Paula Soares da. Political praxis in MST: contributions from Vigotski and Gramsci. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.1, pp. 75-86. ISSN 1516-3687.

The article aims to contribute to the political participation field of study from a materialist dialectical perspective, more specifically, with reference to the Vigotskian psychology and the Gramscian thought. The categories for the development of the proposal are: political praxis, drama and catharsis. The text is based on a research conducted with the “Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra” (MST) in Ribeirão Preto (SP). The theoretical construct dialogues with the empirical corpus created from semi­structured individual interviews with four (4) militants of the social movement. The corpus analysis argues that the political praxis is understood as a specific form of political participation, a complex process that articulates different social and subjective dimensions. The involvement with the social movement is interpreted as a cathartic process in which there is a reorganization of the subjective drama of the subjects, in their cognitive, affective and volitional aspects.

Keywords : political participation; Vigotski; Gramsci; catharsis; MST.
