Research output: Book/ReportBook


The relationship between education and culture is one of the forgotten associations in the pedagogical context, which have been pushed into the background by a fixation on a particular design of empirical research. The illustrations of this book are devoted to the necessary openness, indeed blurring, both for theory and for the practice of pedagogy, with a view to these contexts. At the same time, the articles document the work on the Institute for Education and Culture, founded at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena in 2008, in exemplary excerpts. The volume is opened with a sketch of all the participants under the title Beginnings of the History of the Institute for Education and Culture. To this volume, Ralf Koerrenz contributes his series of lectures, published here for the first time at the University of Jena, In his reflections on enlightenment through education with the reading glasses of the eighteenth century, he differentiates a Greek and a Hebrew tradition as such major currents of European culture, which are the criteria of enlightenment under the sign of self-reflectivity, self-responsibility and authority criticism. This is followed by a contribution by Käthe Schneider with an analysis of education and culture from an ontogenetic perspective. The key question here is how far the progressive education process needs an increasing complexity of culture. Michael Winkler, in his essay On the Discovery of Contexts of Arthur Schnitzler's I, read with interest in questions of pedagogy a text that can be seen as symptomatic of the tumultuous continent, as Philipp Blom has called the development of Europe between 1900 and 1914. What education means is not least visible in the interweaving of structures and processes, which are possible only in a literary work, as they are shown objectively and at the same time are experienced by a subject. In his analysis of the painting "La Vierge corrigeant l enfant", Karsten Kenklies shows how fruitful a pedagogical view of works of art can be. Judeus devant trois témoins: André Breton, Paul Eluard et le peintre (The virgin chastises the Jesus child before three witnesses: André Breton, Paul Eluard and the painter) by Max Ernst. Through the title as a representation of an educational act, the contribution of the MAXIMUM ERNST educational ethics - the reverse of humanity takes the self-interpretation of the painting seriously and develops from an image perspective the framework of an educational ethics. In a similar approach, the contribution of Manuel Fröhlich: Single Form to the (re) construction of the human scale in art and politics is the question of the value of cultural imprints and ideas for international politics. The sculpture single form of the British artist Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) in front of the UN building in New York serves him as a starting point for a consideration of the search for common standards of thought and action in art, literature, philosophy and politics.
