Edited by: Peter Kemp

The wisdom about the good life and about norms in general cannot be deduced from neutral scientific and technological knowledge. Therefore, education as upbringing and formation of the human being cannot dispense the commitment of the educator who must stand for what he or she teaches.

Thus, the crucial questions for the philosophy of education in our time are: What is commitment? What is a committed educator? How is it possible to be committed in education?
