What is Bildung? Or: Why Pädagogik cannot get away from the concept of Bildung


Horlacher, Rebekka (2012). What is Bildung? Or: Why Pädagogik cannot get away from the concept of Bildung. In: Siljander, Paulj; Kivelä, Ari; Sutinen, Ari. Theories of Bildung and growth : connections and controversies between continental educational thinking and American pragmatism. Rotterdam: Sense Publishers, 135-147.

Abstract

Pädagogik, or the German-language education sciences, traditionally sees Bildung as one of its “fundamental principles”. These are the basic notions that are fundamental for the theoretical underpinning of a discipline and can be said to belong exclusively to that discipline. Johann Friedrich Herbart (1776-1841) is usually viewed of as having developed the concept of fundamental principles. In Allgemeine Pädagogik, published in 1806, Herbart’s starting point was that Pädagogik had to formulate “its own concepts,” if it was to position itself as an independent academic discipline (Herbart, 1806, p. 8).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
