Historischen Erblasten verdankt das Paternalismuskonzept den schlechten Ruf, der es zum Abladeplatz für out of date Praktiken und fragwürdige Werte hat werden lassen. Das dürfte dazu beigetragen haben, dass die Pädagogik dieses Begründungsmodell weitgehend aus dem Blick verloren hat. Paternalismusdoktrinen lassen sich als Begründungsressourcen aus Grundbegriffen und Leitmetaphern der Humanwissenschaften herleiten und für Interventionen und Regelungen in Anspruch nehmen, die mit wohltätigen Absichten Überlegungen und Handlungsmöglichkeiten von Menschen beeinflussen und steuern (z.B.: Helmpflicht, Schulpflicht, positive/negative Anreize, Informationen etc.). Paternalismus als "einheimisches Begründungsmodell" konfrontiert Pädagogik mit Fragen nach der Rechtfertigung und Durchsetzung pädagogischer preparations (Paternalismus), Fragen des guten Lebens (Perfektionismus) und Fragen nach Ermöglichungsbedingungen und Grenzen von Freiheit und Autonomie.
