The text poses the question about the possibility and the way of practising today’s philosophical pedagogy. For this purpose it refers to its 19th century example elaborated for pedagogy by the philosopher Bronisław F. Trentowski in his work Chowanna. In the discussion of this concept, the author of the text reflects on the renewed formula of philosophical pedagogy. She argues that scientific development of pedagogy is conducive to conducting a philosophical reflection within it and with its own initiative. In other words, the reflection on the sense of education and on the justification of methods of pedagogical impact, based on philosophical resources and on the research methods of humanities, performed in parallel to the empirical studies, helps pedagogy as a whole to fulfil its purpose. Also it protects pedagogy against politicisation, indoctrination and instrumentalisation of its subject. Philosophically reinforced pedagogy can also strengthen philosophy by providing it with in-depth knowledge of education taken from the rich educational thought of philosophers.
