Refl’Action continues its series of articles about research on reflective practices and how to bring them from the theoretical context to practical implementation. Ιn the previous article, we retraced the history of the evolution of the concept of reflection. In different authors and eras, we have seen how the idea of reflection has imposed itself in the history of thought and action as the cornerstone of human evolution. To investigate the peculiarities of an individual’s reflection, both from an intrapersonal and interpersonal point of view, we want to preliminarily review some definitions of terms related to the concept of reflection but which cannot and must not replace it.
