Pedagogical Science Through Place and Time


Series: Education in a Competitive and Globalizing World
BISAC: EDU016000

This book is an invitation to reflect on anything concerning culture, and especially its institutionalized form of education. It aims to share with readers any data shaped by place and time that concerns education. The content of this interesting and informative manuscript is an expansive overview of the evolution of education, starting from the ancient era all the way to present. It includes the work of renowned theorists, researchers, and authors and highlights the epistemological orientations of pedagogy and pedagogical trends over time, demonstrating the breadth and depth of education that certainly cannot be a mere set of techniques.

The approach of the terms “upbringing”, “education” and “pedagogy” is at the heart of this book/guide for every spiritual man. The purpose of this work is the dissemination of pedagogical values and concerns that, as evidenced by the approach of great pedagogues, do not substantially differ from one country to another. This indeed is the hallmark of classic works, particularly works related to the humanitarian values. In difficult times, we must all turn to defend values — human values — which should permeate education. Modern society presents obvious signs of crisis in the global context, and this is why modern humanity has ceased to be a purpose.

This work is faced with constant challenges in the education sector and raises the concern about the progress of education and its future. It is a necessity and a masterpiece that can be shared with various audiences, directly or indirectly related to the theory and practice of pedagogy. As aptly noted by Dostoevsky in his work “The Basement”, if man seeks to remain human and not a “piano key”, he must show consistency in human capacity. The culture and institutionalized forms, dissemination of pedagogical values are the one and only answer, the single orientation.
