The philosophical nature of this discipline provides at its analysis a speculative sense about the ways teachers do and their considerations about the didactic theory and teaching practice; on the other hand, it assumes the ability to reveal the didactic process from a complex dimension; it means considering the elements that are part of the process, as well as the actions of the teacher and the students, they can't be conceived as linear and uniform processes, but modified by the diversity implicit to the subjectivity, which is part of them, and is present in the nature of the existing theoretical production thereon.
