DALBOSCO, Cláudio Almir; ROSSETTO, Miguel da Silva  y  MARANGON, Márcio Luís. The figure of the master in Goethe and Foucault. Educ. Puc. [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.1, pp.157-173. ISSN 2318-0870.

Reflecting about the figure of the master seems to have disappeared from the contemporary pedagogical scenario. Based on the pedagogical reforms in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, current educational theories focus more on the student and less on the educator. Starting from the hypothesis that there is no human development without self-development, the present essay seeks to investigate the figure of the master in two historically distant authors, Wolfgang Goethe and Michel Foucault. In the first part, we reconstruct some traits that underlie the character Wilhelm Meister, from the novel “Wilhelm Meister: the years of apprentiship”. In the second part, we deal with the meaning of the figure of the master in “The hermeneutics of the subject”. Finally, we address some common traits that these two authors attribute to the figure of the master, emphasizing the idea that without the role of the teacher, which is developed through experience, self-development is impossible. That is, the difficult task of developing oneself occurs by respecting the self-development of others.
