Pedagogical Ethos. A Core competence of Pedagogical Actors?

The article discusses selected attempts to define a specific pedagogical ethos and to identify it as a core competence of pedagogical action, especially of professionally acting pedagogical actors, but also of pedagogical practice as a whole. It compares Plato’s ›Socratic Eros‹ with Hartmut von Hentigs ›Socratic Imperative‹ and uses the pedagogical ethics of Wolfgang Brezinka, Hans-Jochen Gamm and Klaus Prange to show that attempts at justification outside of pedagogy are not able to capture the core competence of pedagogical action. It develops an outlook on a pedagogical ethos- and tact-research that does not interpret the effectiveness of pedagogical action monocausally, but ties it back to transitions from pedagogical to transformational interaction processes (Bildungsprozesse).
