Vygotsky's and Buber's Pedagogical Perspectives: Some Affinities
Bartholo, Roberto; Tunes, Elizabeth; Tacca, Maria Carmen Villela Rosa
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v42 n8 p867-880 Dec 2010
The purpose of this paper is to examine the dialogical and creative character of pedagogic work by analyzing the affinities between Martin Buber's "I-Thou relation" and Lev Semenovich Vygotsky's "Zone of Proximal Development". Backed up by empirical studies on the teacher-student relation, we understand that education can only result in students' development if meaningful processes are undertaken. The paper asserts that education shall primarily aim at "promoting relational possibilities".
