Introduction

Through this chapter, we compare pedagogy defined as the science of children's education with andragogy used as synonymous with the term adult pedagogy. First of all, we define pedagogy after having given an insight into so-called new pedagogies, comparing them with traditional pedagogy, then we define the different types of pedagogies by offering examples each time. Second, we define andragogy after proposing a historical overview of the concept and then we define the principles of andragogy. Thirdly, we propose a comparison between pedagogy and andragogy by first proposing a comparison between the child and the adult.
