Abstract

QUINTERO-LONDONO, Sergio. CONTEX, TRENDS AND ACTORS OF RECONCEPTUALIZATION. Rev. eleuthera [online]. 2019, vol.20, pp.179-198. ISSN 2011-4532.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/eleu.2019.20.10.

Objective.

This article attempts to demonstrate the mediations between the socio-historical development of the capitalist ways of production and social work understood as a profession inscribed in the socio-technical division of labor and production.

Methodology.

The structural crisis of capital in the 1960s and 1970s is particularly analyzed, as well as the actors and professional forces that led the reconceptualization of social work.

Results.

From a historical analysis of a qualitative nature based on documentary analysis, reconceptualization is identified as a movement that is part of professional renewal, in which differentiated theoretical-political tendencies are found.

Conclusion.

Finally, drawing attention to the “politicist” character of Marxism that inspired reconceptualization, a rigorous approach to Marx’s mature work, the critique of political economy, is suggested.

Keywords : capitalism; structural crisis; reconceptualization; marxism.
