OJEDA SAMPSON, Alejandra  and  COVARRUBIAS VILLA, Francisco. The epistemological status of the sustainability discourse.. Eidos [online]. 2011, n.15, pp.142-183. ISSN 1692-8857.

Even though the concept of sustainability emerged from a reality-life emergency, its discourse seems diverse, built even on different onto-gnoseological and teleological assupmtions. This is mainly due to the different perceptions of life held by individuals, as well as to the hegemonic class interests. Then, derived from this different perceptions of life and interests, has been the behavior of human beings on the Earth; sometimes in accordance to it, but many others in outright aggression to it. And if life's way shows life itself, it can be changed, even collapsed by the anthropic hegemonic actions that take place in the planet. It is therefore important to reflect on the categorical and conceptual frameworks that underlie discourse, in order to build a way of thinking that includes all formas of life, that enhances the eco-existentiality of the individual and its community for the enrichment of all.

Keywords : Man; ecoexistential; sustainability; ambiental; anthropic.
