AbstractIn this article, we covered Michel Foucault and Félix Guattari papers in order to try to articulate the “self-care” (Foucault) and "Ecosophy" (Guattari) philosophical concepts and then, to discuss how these concepts can build up a thought on the teachers’ training, as well as, suggesting a training itself which is called “Ecosophic". Between 1981 and 1982, Foucault spoke about the urgency of rebuilding a “self” ethic as a possible confrontation against dissymmetric power relationships. Later, in 1989, Guattari, also referenced this urgency against a multifaceted crisis that deteriorated in the physical environment, social relations and subjectivities of the entire planet. Foucault and Guattari have developed these criticisms for about three decades and we believe their writings may contribute to place the current spotlight.
