AbstractTransmission lies at the root not only of the school problem but also of the educational one, and in turn of life and social fabric as condition for cultural construction, enrollment and cultural identity. Based on this approach, the topic is dealt with taking the following questions as the starting point: What are the senses given to the concept of transmission in the pedagogical field? What other fields can contribute to the topic under discussion? What is the relationship between transmission and education? We propose a theoretical discussion of some notions which enable the term �Stransmission⬝ to be disposed of its negative connotation and which enable its redefinition, creating implications in the pedagogical field. Finally, we reflect upon transmission in the educating action; therefore, we take contributions from authors from different disciplinary fields and analyse a film scene. In turn, we link transmission processes to the educability notion as a unique feature of human beings. We believe that the redefinition of the term in the pedagogical field allow us to think of transmission as leading subjects to build their own paths. In this approach, to educate means basically to create the conditions for the subject�"s symbolic affiliation through the transmission of cultural heritage, making it possible to redefine what has been received and to make changes, in exercise of our freedom.
