Summary/Abstract: The article discusses the development of philosophical and ethical education in Bulgaria during the period 1878-1944. The special attention is paid to the reception of moral ideas dominating European philosophical thinking in cultural space of modern Bulgaria and their presence in the Bulgarian school. We have been guided by the assumption that the apprehension of the Bulgarian historical experience of cultural integration in Europe could give us the key to a new successful reintegration. One of the outcomes of promoted historical approach is that from the beginning of the 20-th Century the German model of ethical and philosophical education has dominated. During this period one vital transmission of ideas took place: most of the university teachers in Ethics and Philosophy who were the authors of the textbooks and didactic materials had graduated in Germany and German speaking countries. We have also analysed the patterns of teaching Ethics in several federal states of Germany. The reasons for this were on the other our common educational tasks. The results of the study revealed the necessity of: establishing close inks between teaching Ethics and the values outlined in the Grownding Law; of developing integrative forms of teaching Ethics; of elaborating university system of training teachers in Ethics.
