Do we need to talk to each other?: How the concept of experience can contribute to an understanding of Bildung and democracy

2010 (English)In: Educational Philosophy and Theory, ISSN 0013-1857, E-ISSN 1469-5812, Vol. 42, no 3, p. 293-309Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this article it is argued that the contested concept of Bildung, with its roots in the late 18th century, remains of interest in the postmodern era, even if there is also certainly a debate about it having had its day. In the specific discussion about Bildung and democracy, it is suggested that Dewey's reconstucted concept of experience has several points in common with a more recent understanding of  Bildung, at the same time as it can provide insight into how democracy can be understood within the field of Bildung. In brief, in this article it is suggested that if we wish to discuss democracy and Bildung, Dewey's notion of experience might offer a bridge between the two concepts, as well as an understanding of subjectivity, learning, and communication as a whole. Finally, communication is a nesessary part of both democracy and Bildung - not because of certain human similarities, but because of the similarities in some of the problems which we humans encounter, and which we think are worth reflecting upon.
