For history researchers, it is not a needless luxury to consider from time to time the content and the significance of the basic concepts they use, certainly if they have the ambition to interpret and/or explain history in addition to purely describing it. This self-reflection, compelled by the annually recurring dialogue with educational philosophers (cf. Smeyers & Depaepe, 2006),2 need not necessarily place an emphasis on philosophical abstraction but can just as well start from an examination of the history of one’s own research. Such an approach need not succumb to navel-gazing. Instead, such historical self-reflection possibly points to the creeping (and thereby largely unconscious) shifts in meaning that accompany various fashions (consider the swirling “turns” of recent years), which affect the social scientific vocabulary (historiographic, philosophical, pedagogical, psychological sociological, etc.). By rendering such developments explicit, the epistemological wrestling with the stream of experiences we call 'history', a process that can be chaotic, may in the future perhaps be somewhat less sloppy. Admittedly, even the most critical concepts that emerged from our own work were not always used with methodological care and/or theoretical purity. [less ▲]

À la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, les architectes R. Braem et J. Sokol furent invités à élaborer le projet d'un nouveau bâtiment scolaire pour l'École Decroly l'Ermitage, une école privée élitaire progressiste qui avait été créée en 1907 à Bruxelles par le Dr Ovide Decroly. D'une part, l'ancien bâtiment était en piteux état et, d'autre part, on craignait que l'école ne devînt trop petite à cause de la croissance du nombre d'écoliers. L'école, qui était le coeur de la rénovation de l'enseignement belge au cours de la première moitié du vingtième siècle, ne disposait toutefois que de peu de ressources financières. Les "Decrolyens" furent dès lors contraints d'organiser une campagne de collecte de fonds outre-mer qui semble s'être soldée par un échec. Le projet de construction s'inscrivait également dans le cadre de la grande campagne de propagande que les Decrolyens voulaient mettre parallèlement sur pied afin de diffuser la "méthode Decroly". Leur bâtiment scolaire (tout comme leur méthode d'enseignement) aurait pu servir de modèle à la construction (et à la gestion) des écoles de l'avenir, en Belgique et à l'étranger. Le discours des "Decrolyens" sur le caractère élitaire et le rôle pionnier de leur école se reflète de manière flagrante dans les conceptions architecturales idéalistes et idéologiques, présentes dans divers croquis intermédiaires, plans de construction non exécutés, descriptions et notices d'accompagnement. Le projet de 1946 n'est toutefois pas une simple traduction de la méthode d'enseignement de Decroly; Braem y a également intégré son idéologie et sa vision de l'architecture "véritablement moderne". La "véritable" architecture moderne était à ses yeux le levier permettant de réaliser une société socialiste libérée. Avec ce projet, les deux parties cherchaient tant à se profiler qu'à s'insurger contre les conceptions architecturales existantes, les pratiques d'enseignement prépondérantes, les images dominantes de la société et de l'être humain. Il n'est dès lors pas étonnant qu'ils aient présenté cet "acte de résistance" comme une rupture nette avec les bâtiments scolaires rationalisés et standardisés de l'époque; les anciens temples dans lesquels on pratiquait l'ancienne croyance. Le projet ne fut jamais réalisé; il resta dans les mémoires à l'état de trace d'un rêve d'avenir nouveau et différent. [less ▲]

Die Autoren schlagen vor, die Materialität der Erziehung als ökonomische Strategie und als Ausdruck der Grammatik pädagogischer Institutionen zu analysieren. […] Als intellektuelle Spielerei über eine merkwürdige "Erfindung" hatte dieser Beitrag nicht unmittelbar zum Ziel, eine theoretische Grundlage für die neue Geschichtsschreibung der Schulbank zu schaffen. Möglicherweise hat er jedoch eine Tür für einen besser geeigneten Umgang mit der pädagogischen Vergangenheit und insbesondere mit der pädagogischen Materialität eröffnet, für einen Umgang, der sich nicht mit Nostalgie zufrieden gibt, sondern sich eher auf eine wissenschaftliche Analyse stützt, welche im Dialog mit den Quellen zustande gekommen ist.

In the authors’ aim to go beyond the ‘silent’ school desk they returned to sources such as public contracts, photographs, advertising leaflets and (the often neglected) patents kept in the municipal archives of Brussels. In this article, they focus on the first half of the twentieth century and two phases of the ‘life-cycle’ of the school desk, namely the design phase on the one hand and the production phase on the other hand. What desks were designed and by whom (cf. patents)? Which desks were effectively produced for use in the municipal schools of Brussels? The transition between these two phases – the place where only some designs were brought to ‘life’ – occupies a special place. The paper concludes with a case study on the school furniture of Oscar Brodsky, a designer who kindled the authors’ interest through his publicity campaign of the 1920s and 1930s. [less ▲]

The contribution is divided into three parts; first, [it tries] ... to uncover the Decrolyians'discourse concerning school architecture. On the basis of original sources, [the authors] ... look at the manner in which Decroly's and his disciples' thoughts on school buildings expressed themselves in the material heritage. Subsequently, Decroly's own school location is described and the question is raised as to how the developed environment was integrated into the pedagogical practice. In the final section, we study the utopian blue-print by the architects Renaat Braem (who nowadays is still considered one of the most important representatives of modern architecture and modern urban development in Belgium) and Jack Sokol, dating back to 1946. This had been a megalomaniacal project which was described both by the archtitects mentioned above and by the Decrolyians as a break with the existing school buildings, the ancient temples of pedagogy, in which one professed one's faith in the old didactics. It links up with the body of thought of an international plea which had been discussed during the first half of the 20th century, mainly in reform-pedagogical circles. The fact that the Decrolyians did, in the end, not realize their project of a renewable architecture was not so much the result of their persistent skepticism regarding one or the other school-architectonic determinism, which would transport the school building beyond the pre-eminence of its flexible use within the framework of the active method, it was simply due to limited financial resources.
