Robert Owen, pédagogue de la modernité ?

Abstract : Robert Owen’s figure (1771-1858) is well known as regards infant education thanks to his foundation of New Lanark Infant School in Scotland (1816). This school was however only the first step of his project. The social reformer wanted to change society through education: his pedagogical work therefore proves to be far more important. Our research intends to shed light on his educational achievements addressed to the whole population. Owen was however considering his Scottish experience as a “compromise” with his social philosophy. We thus attempted to comprehend his theoretical conceptions beyond what he was able to implement. He claimed the newness of his proposals. Those are examined with regard to the main 18th and 19th centuries’ pedagogical movement: educational modernity (Hameline; Houssaye)
