BRITTO, Fabiano de Lemos. Cultural identity and individual formation: Germany in 19th century and the foundation of modern pedagogy. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2012, vol.33, n.118, pp.217-233. ISSN 0101-7330. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302012000100014.
The origins of modern pedagogy and its reverberation within the most recent education theories leads us backwards to German model, that articulates itself in two ways: as a set of pragmatic actions, derived from a series of social and cultural conditions, and as conceptual system, as long as it responds to a new conception of human freedom that came up in the beginning of modern thought. This paper intends to evaluate the imbrications between those two dimensions.
