Education: Understanding, Ethics, and the Call of Justice
Joldersma, Clarence W.
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v30 n5 p441-447 Sep 2011
Education is interpreted as something basic to our humanity. As part of our primordial way of being human, education is intrinsic to the understanding's functioning. At the same time education involves an originary ethical relation to the other, unsettling the self-directed character of the striving to live. And because of its social setting, the call of many others, education orients one to the social, to the call of justice.
