This bibliographical investigation is founded upon the theoretical framework laid out by Theodor Adorno, with the stated goal of understanding underlying issues of the formation process as explored by the book “Negative Dialectics” (2009). Having as a starting point the questions regarding philosophical conditions and perspectives inherent to this book, unveiling paradoxes subordinate to the formation, this research is structured in three interrelated chapters. The first chapter explores the basis upon which the analysis contained in said Adornian thought publication are established, object of the present reflection, and using this retrospective outlook point out the contradictions faced up by it, dilemmas that have been majorly responsible for the return of philosophy, which, diminished to a “particular science”, according to the thoughts of Adorno (2009), consequently caused the split between particular and universal, or at its extreme between subject and object, theory and praxis. The second chapter looks at the sociohistorical aspects relative to the productive process under the Industrial-Cultural empire, and its essential interferences in educational work and, consequently, formational. The third chapter deals with the knowledge of the contributions provided by the Critical Theory of Society, with respect to “Negative Dialectics”, towards the development of a self-reflective perspective, aiming to achieve an axial revolution that may enable building a formative process that allows exercising autonomy and emancipation. It is understood that “Negative Dialectics”, as a critical-reflexive method and through the lenses of the Knowledge Theory, configures itself as an axis of criticism to the, mainly, educational system, therefore resisting to any shape of pseudo-formation and, that why, barbarity.
