What Exactly is Pedagogy： A Discussion on the Basic Concept of Pedagogy
A basic discipline cannot obtain the value of independent setting unless it forms its own specialized concept and maintains its basic concept as strictly as possible so as to cultivate the independent knowledge of this discipline as the core of the research scope. What exactly is pedagogy? To answer this question， we should begin from recognizing and clarifying the basic concepts of pedagogy. Currently in our country， the academic terms that were used to describe the basic concepts of educational disciplines， such as “education”，“cultivation”，“teaching” and “curriculum”，have become commonwords in daily life along with the popularization of education， leading to the generalization of the basic concepts of this discipline. This causes the mixture of professional and non-professional statements in the discipline of pedagogy. Starting from the two basic concepts of pedagogy in American education research and continental European education research，the author considers t may be helpful in establishing pedagogy that suits our national conditions by drawing lessons from how American education circles have transformed from continental European educational cultures to educational cultures that sutt the national conditions of the United States， and how continental European education has maintained an independent attitude and how t can be improved on the basis of the original tradition of educational theory in the face of practical applications of A- merican education and the education marketization.
