The ethics of compassion in the pedagogy of alterity

Pedro Ortega Ruiz

In this paper the author describes the identity of the pedagogy of alterity, based on Levinass ethics and anthropology. For the author, the pedagogy of alterity is indebted to a circumstance, because there are no education outside time and space, is a response to a singular and particular subject, is reception to the other and resistence to evil, is memory of what our elders have been built, and testimony, more than instruction.
