Pedagogy of Human Galenosphere

Languages of publication



This paper deals with galenosphere as an environment of silence. The topic has not been widely researched and there are but a few publications on it. At the same time an increase of noise in all human environments can be observed. ‘Galenosphere’ is a new term that has recently entered the scientific and journalistic language. The first part of the article discusses the role and significance of galenosphere on the basis of its functions. The state of calming down positively affects the development of human spirituality and facilitates both thought-formation and narration. Furthermore, it enables interpersonal dialogue, which enriches the interlocutor, and deepens the understanding of the meaning of life. Also, the dynamic components of galenosphere, such as calming down, concentration of the mind and emotions, inner concentration and the ability to be silent, are presented. The functioning of human galenosphere is dependent on this type of factors. The second part of the paper focuses on the pedagogic aspects of galenosphere. It emphasizes that a structured galenosphere is an optimal environment for the process of upbringing. This can be noticed in the case of family galenosphere. One of the major conclusions is a call for education “for silence” and “via silence”, based on a conviction that great works of one’s life are produced in silence, not in noise.
