Abstract

Education is an invaluable means towards the attainment of personal fulfillment and a well-functioning society. It is the most important gift ever to be handed down from generation to generation. Children’s essential needs can only be met in a genuine and fruitful relationship with significant adult figures, willing to commit themselves to the pedagogical endeavor. The typical human tension to establishing relations brings with it an intrinsic ethical need that prompts the individual to carry out a specific moral task, that is the humanization of the other. Such pedagogical commitment has found in Janus Korczak and in Rev. Lorenzo Milani two exemplar witnesses.
