Pedagogy and the care of the self: A reading from Foucault
(2017) Educational Philosophy and Theory, 49 (7), pp. 702-709.
This text reflects about the need to consider an additional institutional alternative that matters, not only to the ones that advocate for pedagogy, but also to all of those involved in different educational processes. It is, so to speak, a Paideia that privileges the care of the self as a substantial value, and, as such, it is not dedicated to a unique moment on people’s lives and it does not correspond to a specific institution, but to the universal and singular spirit of the human affairs. © 2016 Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia.
