Criticism about freedom of education. Adorno’s material

Autore: Pinciroli Gianmarco



ATTENTION, digital version: read-only pdf.


This essay defines the concept of freedom of education on the basis of the question “which subject considers the education gesture as having a non-reified meaning?” and, by using Adorno’s theoretical material, on the basis of a criticism of the concept of freedom; even if he never explicitly thematised a specific detailed and systematic point of view about Education, Adorno – at least from the 50s until just before he died – felt the need to empirically intervene on some issues such as television, education after Auschwitz, teacher status, and debarbarization. Although sometimes only marginally, these themes posed a question in original terms – at least for those years – about the goal of an education aimed at creating a disalienated man.
