This study starts from the explicitation of the meaning of "Faculdade de Educação, Ciências e Letras" (School of Education, Sciences, and Letters) in relation to "Faculdade de Filosofia, Ciências e Letras" (School of Philosophy, Sciences, and Letters) as proposed at the creation of the USP, covering the brief attempt of an alternative model represented by the Universidade do Distrito Federal (Federal District University) and reconstitutes the course of the Study of Pedagogy since its creation in 1939 to the current days. The conclusion of the work shows the verification that the excessive concern of the movement of the educators and of the scholars of the topic about the regulation, that is, about its organizational aspects, has hindered the examination of the more substantial aspects of the very meaning and contents of a Pedagogy whose foundation must structure the corresponding study. Thus the continuation of the investigation, beyond this work, should articulate the historical approach with the theoretical perspective of the problem in study.
