Il presente contributo affronta il tema dell’identità e del ruolo dell’educatore a partire dalle stimolanti riflessioni che E. C. Lindeman affidò al suo scritto Three Verbs in Search of a Meaning: To Teach, To Guide, To Indoctrinate (1934), di cui si presenta qui la prima traduzione in lingua italiana. L’articolo di Lindeman costituisce l’occasione per approfondire le direzioni di senso dell’educare, inteso come guida e stimolo, attraverso la conoscenza, per lo sviluppo delle personalità individuali e, complessivamente, di tutta una comunità, ma anche per disvelare le sue pericolose derive intitolate all’indottrinamento. Dall’analisi critica del testo, emergono inoltre interessanti suggestioni per chiarire il rapporto tra insegnante/educatore, epistemologia della conoscenza e deontologia professionale: si tratta di questioni sempre attuali che evidenziano il tratto della responsabilità come caratteristica peculiare dell’insegnante/educatore e che offrono linee guida irrinunciabili per il suo percorso di formazione iniziale e in servizio.

Abstract

Starting from the stimulating remarks by E. C. Lindeman’s article titled Three Verbs in Search of Meaning in: To Teach, To Guide, To indoctrinate (1934) – herein translated into Italian for the first time – this paper addresses the issue of identity and of role of the educator. Lindeman’s writing is an opportunity to examine in depth the meaning of education, conceiving it as a guide and stimulus, through knowledge, to development of the individual personality and, overall, of the whole community, but also it permits to unveil its dangerous expressions, e.g. the indoctrination activity. Moreover, a critical analysis of Lindeman’s text shows interesting suggestions to clarify the relationship between teacher/educator, epistemology of knowledge and professional ethics: they are current issues which highlight the responsibility as the basic characteristic of the teacher/educator, and they come to envision essential guidelines for initial and in-service training teacher/educator.
