Centre for Philosophy of Education

The theoretical framework of research implemented within the Centre is related to classic and modern philosophical ideas on upbringing and education. Said research includes various philosophical approaches towards analysing and interpreting epistemological, metaphysical, ethical, and political dimensions of upbringing and education. Particular attention is paid to a critical analysis of core concepts (upbringing, education, indoctrination, citizenship, tolerance, justice, equal opportunity, human and children’s rights, knowledge, patriotism, etc.).
