Fields of knowledge in school and democratic education

Massimo Baldacci

Abstract


This article looks into the role of the educational principle in the thought of Dewey and Gramsci, emphasizing common traits related to the development of a fully democratic education. These notions are analysed within the framework of a broad curricular perspective, one that takes into account global educational effects that can be achieved in the long run. Against this background, the article explores the contents and languages of cultural works that can contribute to the structural development of specific cognitive abilities, or frames of mind.
