What Does It Mean to Educate?
Practice and Theory in Systems of Education, v11 n1 p49-54 Feb 2016
This paper focuses on the most abstract and most boring question of pedagogy or, as I prefer to call my field of interest, the theory of pedagogy. My aim is to try to rehash and re-pose this question--maybe even answer it? In this regard, Ottó Mihály advises us to be careful; in the preface to his notes on the philosophy of pedagogy he asserts that we do not know what educating is but we know that there exist "various valid and eligible answers" to this question.
