The ‘Incompetent Subject’ in the Kingdom of Technical Terms. A Possible Role of Pedagogy in the Study of Cultural Traits

Abstract

Education is not only a process studied by pedagogy, and it does not come about only in ‘educational environments’. We are continually educated and we often are educators of others in our everyday life. What’s more, all social institutions can be considered educational as they do always influence and change our ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Our ideas about education and all educational practices are typical expressions of contexts where we spend our life. As such, they are to be considered cultural. Anyway, in every historical and social background it is possible to make some specific cultural traits emerge. Moving from my recent pedagogical research, I show some cultural traits that are operating to reduce the freedom of subjects in our society, and show some possible alternatives.

Acknowledgments

Here, I would thank Emanuele Serrelli and Fabrizio Panebianco for the possibility to participate in this interdisciplinary book. Thanks in particular to Emanuele Serrelli for his personal esteem and for the interest he has often expressed for my studies. Thank you to Paola Manciagli for having introduced me to Carlo Michelstaedter’s thought, for all her patient, critical readings, but above all because I can always communicate, share and discuss my thoughts and ideas with her. Thanks to Sandra Castoldi because she is always present when I need help. Finally, thanks to Adriano Voltolin and Daniele Sartori for some important bibliographical advice.
