Pedagogy is a social science and a superior intellectual helping profession, and has 2500 years of history in both respects, significant from the very beginning. Here, we pass in a summary reviewing some historical information, the underlying epistemological issues, and a wide sample choice of procedures, conceptual and operational tools, techniques and methods of professional practice. The paper is completed by the synthetic exhibition of the pedagogical treatment of three cases of couple and parenthood problems, in which the applications of the whole is highlighted. This professional reminiscence opens the talk to future developments.
