BOTO, Carlota. In favor of professional ethics: in search of a new paideia. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2002, vol.6, n.10, pp. 9-25. ISSN 1414-3283. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-32832002000100002.
This article discusses the current nature of the concept of paideia, in the light of the interweaving between the original Greek frame of reference and the operative category of what we will call, in this article, "professional ethics". It is a study that intends to formulate guidelines for thinking about the themes of teaching and learning, methodologically, starting from the idea of interdisciplinary studies. This will allow us to recompose the art of pedagogical thinking, avoiding the fragmented specializations of this field, but including in it its chief ethical aspects. We believe that, in this way, it will be possible to establish a new and modern paideia, for contemporary teachers and students in the third millenium.
