Amelia Broccoli, Virtue and wisdom. Some comments on the relationship between ethics and education.

The article proposes a reflection on the relationship between education, pedagogy and ethics, starting from the aristotelic solicitations in the field of practical philosophy, which is largely echoed in contemporary philosophical debate. In fact, with Aristotle, ethics is considered as a discipline in its own right, as an autonomous praxis that, together with politics, helps to create the habit of virtue. In the relationship with ethics, there are two possibilities for pedagogical reason: to link to the ethics of prescription, deeply revising his scientific status; or accept the non-peremptory and non-epistemic of an ethic of wisdom and care.

Keywords: virtue, ethics, wisdom, care, educational action
