Abstract

One of the basic problems of contemporary educational theory is the ambiguous conception of the educand, who is regarded as both the object of a process of socialization and an independent individual, i.e., a subject. This conception is an amalgamation of two different philosophical outlooks, the educational implications of which are contradictory. Kierkegaard's concept of education is a model of a radical individualistic philosophy, which substitutes conventional education for self-education. Examining his concept of education sheds light on its theoretical and practical implications for contemporary education. The ambiguous position of the educand in the educational process turns out to be paradoxical, and thus undermines educational practice. Kierkegaard's philosophy does not offer a general solution to the problems with which it confronts us but it does lead us to reflect on them, which helps us to understand ourselves.
