Languages of publication
The article consists of two parts. The first part presents the most important stages of scientific discipline shaping defined nowadays as peace research. In the second part, the focus is on the specificity of pedagogic thinking about peace, in order to illustrate its consonance with the trends developing in peace research, for several decades, and to emphasize the sense of education as one of the ways to create and strengthen peace. According to that perspective every human being, and not only political decision makers, should feel responsible for the existence of the peaceful ordering of the world.
