The essay aims at introducing the pedagogical vision of the nonviolent tradition. It focuses in particular on Aldo Capitini, the father of the Italian nonviolent movement. It also considers Thoreau, Tolstoj, Gandhi, Alexander Langer. The nonviolent philosophy and movement generated an extensive analysis on society and therefore on education. Education is an emanation of the advent of democracy and with the so-called "child-centric revolution" (Piaget, Dewey, Montessori), but it also carries some specific traits that identify it. The article will focus on these specific traits: the religious (and lay) perspective and the revolutionary tension towards liberation.

Abstract

The essay aims at introducing the pedagogical vision of the nonviolent tradition. It focuses in particular on Aldo Capitini, the father of the Italian nonviolent movement. It also considers Thoreau, Tolstoj, Gandhi, Alexander Langer. The nonviolent philosophy and movement generated an extensive analysis on society and therefore on education. Education is an emanation of the advent of democracy and with the so-called "child-centric revolution" (Piaget, Dewey, Montessori), but it also carries some specific traits that identify it. The article will focus on these specific traits: the religious (and lay) perspective and the revolutionary tension towards liberation.
