1. TITLE: Dynamics of the teaching-learning process in Higher Education: an approach to the holistic configurational competency approach. AUTHORS: Homero Calixto Fuentes González, José Manuel Benítez García, Amelia López Fuentevilla, Andrea Daniela Albán Navarro, Rosa Victoria Guijarro Intriago. ABSTRACT: In this article, an epistemological approach on the dynamics of the teaching-learning process in Higher Education based on holistic configurational competencies is done. The competency-based approach focuses on the student, and as Comenio says, it is a paedocentric approach, because it is the student who must be competent. The emphasis is on putting in practice the expected learning rather than on content and it focuses on self-knowledge management, which recognizes that knowledge is the main source for creating values. It allows students to find social meaning and usefulness to learning, which encourages and prepares them to be independent in life and work.

48. TITLE: Cornelius Castoriadis and Claude Lefort about the Soviet Union Manageability: Political and Educational Dilemmas of the Left wing. AUTHORS: Sergey Gashkov, María V. Rubtsova. ABSTRACT: Nowadays, sociology put the question about the manageability: how the working class is to be managed in such a way as to avoid the domination. It is to remember, that after the Russian Socialist Revolution in 1917, the bureaucracy in Russia took place of the dominating class. The French New-Marxism was especially interested in critique and disillusionment of the bureaucratic state capitalism, and was looking for theoretical solutions of the problem of domination by the political management. In our paper, we consider the conception of psyche by Castoriadis as the demand to a social individual to be creative by management. Our study tends to prove that the managers are to be educated in such a way as to promote the autonomous society. KEY WORDS: Soviet Union Manageability, Philosophy of Management, French Neo-Marxism, Lefort, Castoriadis. RUSSIA.
