Pedagogía y Saberes

versión impresa ISSN 0121-2494


VILLA-DIAZ, Mario. What Is Pedagogy?. Pedagogía y Saberes [online]. 2019, n.50, pp.11-28. ISSN 0121-2494.

This research article develops an approach to pedagogy from a sociological perspective or, preferably, from a sociology of pedagogy. It aims to create a critical space that has barely existed around the substratum of pedagogy, and tries to answer the question: What is understood by pedagogy? The article also makes a brief analysis of how many of the discourses produced throughout history have to do with the direct or indirect regulation of subjectivity. These discourses have been considered as means of recontextualizing reason, conscience and knowledge. In this sense, it is argued that, for pedagogical discourse, there is no impenetrable semantic space. Pedagogical discourse is an intrinsic principle to all social interaction and is a means of reproducing power relations and control principles.

Palabras clave : pedagogical discourse; pedagogy; sociology; power; control; social interaction.
