Ignazio Volpicelli, Educational ethics, educational ethicality


This essay proposes, through a well-structured historical reconstruction, the close relationship between ethics and Education, assessing it in its dimension of possibility of individual acting. In this context, freedom is compared to concepts such as responsibility, guilt, autonomy. Making reference to Kant and Schopenhauer, and then to some thinkers who, in modern times, have tackled the relationship between ethics and education in a problematic way, the author retraces a line of unity which indissolubly keeps together the changes of the concept of ethics and the progress of historical life.
