Professionalism and Ethos: Monolithic-Personal Domains of Pedagogical Tact

Building on a conceptual-historical reconstruction by Fageth (2022), this article argues that the recurrent thematic threads of pedagogical tact – serving as a mediation principle between theory and practice in professionalization debates on one hand, and as an ethically normative antinomy concept in pedagogical relationship formation on the other – should not be considered separately. Instead, following Petzelt (1961), they should be unified in the interpersonal domain (relationship of the self to oneself) and intrapersonal domain (relationship between self and others) of a tactful character. To achieve this, it appears essential to transcend the traditional discourse that designates pedagogical tact as an ›agent‹ and systematically engage in elucidating a fallible »professional-ethical attitude« (Seichter 2015, p. 50) of tactful educators.
