This article observes the paradigm shift in the history of education through different time periods. The author
departs from his perspective as a historian and educator, while comparing authors who have dealt with the
same thematic discourse. The realisation of the challenges of the so-called ‘new cultural history of education’
by a new academic approach invites to experience the so necessary historical contextualisation.
