O początkach Wydziału Pedagogicznego Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego i „Kwartalnika Pedagogicznego”
Languages of publication
The text is a developed and supplemented record of a long conversation between Prof. Irena Wojnar, the oldest employee of the Faculty of Education at the University of Warsaw, the longstanding (since 1949) associate of Prof. Bogdan Suchodolski (1903–1992), and Dr. Adam Fijałkowski, the current editor-in-chief of “The Pedagogical Quarterly”. The authors try to characterize and evaluate the cultural and political climate in Poland, in Warsaw and at the University of Warsaw in 1945–1956. At that time, pedagogy studies were formed at the University of Warsaw, first within the existing Faculty of Humanities, and since 1953 – in the newly created Faculty of Education. Prof. Suchodolski played a significant role in this process. On the basis of her own memories, Prof. Wojnar discusses Prof. Suchodolski’s pedagogical views and organisational assumptions – including the pedagogy of culture and the humanistic education, the role of international cooperation, his role in publishing a series of books and journals, including the creation of “The Pedagogical Quarterly” in 1956.
