Historical Epistemology

The research field of “Historical epistemology – on the history of pedagogical forms of thought and knowledge“ focuses on the conditions of the possibility, the historical “apriori“ of pedagogical knowledge.

How are objects of observation, e.g. achievement, gift, competence and attention, constructed and marked as pedagogical, in how far is observation characterisable as fundamentally pedagogical action? What trends and developments were recognisable for such terms and how do respective definitions affect for example the self perception of teachers?
