TOURINAN LOPEZ, José Manuel. The educational relationship is a concept with own meaning, that it requires concordance between values and feelings in each interaction. Sophia [online]. 2019, n.26, pp.223-279. ISSN 1390-8626.

From the point of view of Pedagogy it can be founded that the educational relationship is a concept with a meaning of its own, related to the character of education, and it requires agreement between values and feelings in each interaction. The aim of this work is the analysis of the educational relationship as a concept which has its own meaning and so, by purpose and meaning, is a distinct relationship. There are several terms that have been used in the pedagogical literature to identify the educational relationship: caring, coexisting and communicating are the most used. These three concepts are necessary but not sufficient conditions of the educational relationship. These synonyms terms have helped to consolidate what characterizes the educational relationship. From each of these terms there is something that remains in the distinctive traits of the educational relationship as it is based on this article. Sometimes the antinomic pairs have been used to interpret and understand the educational relationship. Authority and freedom, for example, have their own place in the educational relationship, but they do not invalid the necessary reference to the activity and the purpose of education to define the relationship. Defining the educational relationship, really, requires elucidating the traits that determine the meaning of that relationship as an educational relationship. They are traits linked to the founding condition of values in education, the double condition of agent-author and agent-actor of each subject concerning his/her education, the double condition of field of knowledge and of action for education. These traits are constitutive of the meaning of education as a complex object. The educational relationship is the substantive way of educational intervention, it is its concrete act. It is identified with the interaction which we establish to perform the activity of educating. In educational relationship we must go from thought to action, we must go from attained and attainable value to effective accomplishment. We have to know what the theory-practice relation is like in each interaction.
