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.
A school with a teacher that educates as a machine is like a school
without teacher, a nightmare of an inhuman education.

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?

The editor Peter KEMP is professor emeritus of philosophy at the School of

of the International Federation of Philosophical Societies, and was
president of the XXIInd World Congress of Philosophy (2008). He is
currently general treasurer of The International Institute of Philosophy.
