LIMA, João Francisco Lopes de. The subject, rationality and the pedagogical speech of modernity. Interações [online]. 2002, vol.7, n.14, pp.59-84. ISSN 1413-2907.

This article is structured upon the comprehension of modern education as a product of Iluminist interferences, synthesized in what we called Modernity. Scientific rationality and subjectivity metaphysics are the first reference of modern pedagogy. Subjectivity metaphysics incorporates the concept of epistemological subject to educational process. The comprehension of a universal subject, who owns a reason, and its universal and identical properties in every individual, becomes the ground on which pedagogical theories move. The educational process, influenced by scientific rationality, is surroundded by methodological pedagogy and teaching techniques as a way to assure the appropriation, by the epistemological subject, of the cultural contents reproduced by the school. In its approach, the present study searches in Kant’s, Rousseau’s and Herbart’s thoughts, the structural contents of the modern pedagogical speech, although it recognizes that it doesn’t present, in itself, an internal unity. The links between the compprehension of subject and the building of a pedagogical speech for the education to accomplish the tasks it got from modernity, are presented as object of this study which places itself in the field of philosophy of education.
