Metaphysics or ontology of education?

Author(s): Mikołaj Krasnodębski
Subject(s): Philosophy, Education
Published by: Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego
Keywords: metaphysics; ontology; realism; idealism; education; anthropology
Summary/Abstract: In this article I discuss the philosophical history of idealism and ontology as well as of realism and metaphysics (direct inspiration for this text comes from a book by Piotr Jaroszyński: Metaphysics or Ontology? [Polish edition: Lublin 2011; English edition: Brill, 2018]). The dispute that takes place between these trends influences pedagogy and in many cases determines it. The text indicates the consequences resulting from the adoption of educational ontology or educational metaphysics. They also affect anthropology, ethics, axiology and the practice of upbringing and education.
