Abstract

This article explores the relationship between wonder and education in a pedagogical perspective involving human educability and ability of every person to fully develop his/her own being. The experience of wonder reflects the questions, problems and disorientations typical of contemporary life and requires the person to be able to rediscover a passion for critical thinking and for the sense of good. in this context, the article makes a distinction between cognitive wonder and wonder as a moral feeling, enabling us to acquire a unique knowledge of reality, of our own self and of people around us.
