In the context of socio-cultural diversity is not enough to know that there are other ways of living life or other world views; on the contrary, it's necessary to establish a position from a new framework generated in the dialogue of epistemological individuals representing different worlds and who are under the need of interconnecting themselves in order to reform intercultural education. In this context, this discussion will attempt to account some theoretical knowledge, in order to intensify this dialogue turning into an invitation to cross the border of the paradigms that define our current educational projects. This essay draws on the knowledge of a farmer from central Chile, who talks about his life and education. In conclusion, it appears the demand for an education for life, built on knowledge, history and daily life of human beings who are immersed in their local contexts.
