Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the article is to outline the differences between such pedagogical categories as: rigorism and liberalism of upbringing, assessing the content, range of meaning of terms and providing legitimacy for them in strategies of upbringing and their different types. Thus, a historical synthetic view is applied that should show, in a lapidary way, the development of thought connected to constraint and liberty in upbringing and in particular the symptoms of practice in that range from antiquity to modern times. Moreover, the analysis of two inconsistent pedagogical conceptions was conducted that are subsumed in the relation homo educandus vs. homo non educandus. These conceptions, in different ways, refer to such categories as pedagogical freedom and determine their meaning to education. This approach allowed two types of educational strategies to emerge that are presented in two categories: autocratic strategy and formation strategy. In each of them there is a problem referring to selected pedagogical imperatives that have been described in detail. These include: obedience, discipline, respect for punishment, responsibility and conscientiousness. It also shows their relation with the process of shaping attitudes to learner efficiency, especially the efficiency of morality which should be understood as an element of the result of the educational process. Pedagogical imperatives to that the educators referred to can indicate the level of awareness of the educational and pedagogical culture of those who assume responsibility for the education of youth. The role of pedagogical imperatives is to support learners in their personal and social development.
