The Many Identities of Pedagogics as a Challenge: Towards an Ontology of Pedagogical Research as Pedagogical Practice
Bengtsson, Jan
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v38 n2 p115-128 Apr 2006
The history of pedagogics gives the impression that pedagogics has never had an identity of its own. Throughout history it has borrowed its identity from philosophy, theology, psychology and sociology. Against the background of this historical challenge, the article proposes pedagogical practice as an alternative identity to pedagogics, although not in the classical sense of an absolute and self-sufficient identity, and it develops one particular ontological theory of pedagogical practice viewed from a life-world approach with the ambition of suggesting a theoretical point of departure for pedagogical research.
