Breve fenomenologia della vita emotiva nella prospettiva dell'educazione

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The paper explores the link between human becoming and biographical narrative, within the empathy-centred existential dialogue. The existential dialogue should not be assimilated to a psychotherapeutic method: it is, rather, a special care relationship within an educational perspective.In a semiological analysis, the existential dialogue is an interaction shaped according to an empathetic code and giving rise to a peculiar relational regulation system based on: 1. demandingness (or control), linked to authority and competence; 2. emotional responsiveness (or empathetic contact), linked to socio-affective interaction; 3. authenticity (or congruence), linked to transparency in speaking. In an existential dialogue, control is low, empathetic contact is high, and authenticity helps a congruent interaction by enabling an authoritative and cooperative educating style.
