Bearing in mind the great foreign models (British, Belgian, German, Swiss, Italian) an analysis is made of attempts to introduce into Spain modern pedagogic tendencies during the first third of the 20th century, without forgetting a number of precedents in the 19th century. Discussion is also made of the response and attitude of the Church towards the emergence and adaptation of these new pedagogic models
Based on the philosophy of Kant, various attempts made in the 19th and early-20th centuries to constitute pedagogy as a scientific discipline are presented. Analysis is made of the educational function of the aesthetic experience according to Schiller, Herbart’s model, the return of Kant through Natorp’s regulatory pedagogy and, finally, the constitution of pedagogy as the science of the spirit.
The revista española de pedagogía is present in the leading Spanish and international databases, such as Journal Citation Reports (JCR), Scopus, JSTOR, etc. In fact, it was the first Spanish journal to appear in JCR, where 95 per cent of the journals in the Education and Educational Research category are only available in English. Consequently, since 2017, the revista española de pedagogía has also made all of its articles and book reviews available online in English.
All of the articles published in the journal since it was founded in 1943 are available on this website. Articles can be downloaded for free apart from ones from the previous year.
