Antoine Léon (1921-1998) : un précurseur de l’orientation éducative

Abstract : Antoine Léon (1921-1998), was a vocational guidance counselor at the research department of Inetop between 1947 and 1957. Mentored by Henri Wallon and active communist, he elaborates, with several of his colleagues, a pedagogical guidance opposed to the approach, then dominating in France, driven by Henri Piéron, based on the evaluation of abilities by psychotechnical tests. He distanced himself from the political line of his party. He became a professor of education at Sorbonne university and a specialist in history and psychology, after a prolific career of almost fifty years marked by the publication of fifteen books and one hundred and sixty articles. His work, strongly criticized by Pieron, lay the foundation for a pedagogical approach that will be imposed several decades later.
