The book that is presented before us represents the author’s collected and published works and essays in various journals. All of them in some parts have been revised and arranged in a way that they represent separate chapters here. These chapters represent an attempt to learn about some fundamental issues in the field of education in our contemporary conditions.
On Upbringing and Education: Pedagogical Essays and Insights is a unique text which represents important theoretical and methodological insights into the determinants of upbringing and education as well as the most recent defining and decisive crises of upbringing and education in modern society. The book developed as a result of the author’s long years of reflections on social “illnesses” and their impact on upbringing and education and represents a reaction to the systematic institutionalization and instrumentalization that gradually repress the authentic and human need for upbringing and education.
