The paper proposes a reflection on the concept of educability as central core of a theory about the person and his/her education. Starting from the main coordinates of a pedagogy that identifies his object of study in the person as educable being, the author argues the importance of an interpretation of the meaning of human potential and personal aspirations. To understand in an effective and concrete way the educable characteristics of each person, should be considered the contemporary problematic context and especially the misunderstandings in which educational reflections and practices can fall when don’t consider an interpretation as close as possible to the human and existential conditions of future generations. As consequence the following keys are proposed: the difficulty of the contemporary educational context; the recovery of a new humanism in education; a pedagogical theory of person that focuses the concept of educability; the analysis of different characters of the educability; and, finally, the attention to educational dynamics to improve the interpretation of the potential and aspirations of new generations.
