Bildung and Paideia examines traditional humanistic ideals in light of philosophical reflection on the need for education of the whole human being.

The study of what it is to be human is traditionally the task of the humanities. In recent years, however, the humanities have been increasingly subordinated to technological, economic, and utilitarian aims. Do the humanities still have a fundamentally distinct task to fulfil in education? Today's reduction of educational outcomes to measurable competencies and economically exploitable skills is opposed to traditional ideals like that of Greek paideia and the German Romantic concept of Bildung, which emphasized formation of the whole human being. The present volume takes as its point of departure the conviction that the study of 'the human experience'-whether through philosophy, literature, religion, art, music, history, or languages-has something specific to offer in the realm of education today. The individual contributions examine the specific role of philosophy and the humanities in education from ancient times to the present and explore possibilities for conceiving philosophical models of education.

The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the journal Educational Philosophy and Theory.
