Summary/Abstract: German pedagogy is the reference point for the analysis of the relationship between educational sciences and pedagogy, due to the fact that in Germany educational sciences constitute a distinct field of study. In my work, I refer to the origins of educational sciences in German-speaking countries and present their development and status in Poland. I offer three cognitive perspectives in the Polish approach to educational sciences. First, pedagogy as a science of education, whose purpose is human education. Second, the science of education which is like pedagogical metatheory of education or educational metascience. Third, the science of educational sciences, i.e. the science that integrates the results from different areas and fields of science which make education the subject of their research.
