[We provide a clear definition of tutelary social attitude and role. Relation is crucial at any layer of sociality (from family to profession and politics). We argue why it is fundamental to ground this social-science construct on psychological/cognitive notions, like human ‘gnoseological...
[The theory of ‘tutelage’ must be grounded on the theories of ‘goal adoption’ and ‘dependence’—the two foundational dynamics of sociality/society. ‘Goal adoption’: X makes Y’s purpose his own; Y’s need/desire becomes X’s purpose. How? Why? ‘Dependence’ of Y from X relative to his goal Gy: Y has...
