LASTORIA, Luiz A. Calmon Nabuco. Ethical impasses in education today. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2003, vol.24, n.83, pp. 429-440. ISSN 0101-7330.

This paper deals with the philosophical conscience in the thinking of T. W. Adorno as for the fading of ethics as an inherent possibility for education. In attempt to understand the meaning of the "doctrine of the mean", which, according to Adorno, would have currently been forgotten, this article revisits the ethical thinking of Aristotle, trying clarify its immanent meaning to education. Finally, some issues about contemporary education matters are discussed under the perspective of the thoughts of Adorno.

Keywords : Ethics; Education; Aristotle; Adorno; Family.
