Gadamer and Hegel on Bildung

Abstract [en]

 This chapter examines Gadamer’s and Hegel’s theory of Bildung (education or cultivation). According to Hegel, Bildung occurs in two main forms. Initially, the child is subject to (i) elementary education, which aims to integrate it into the cultural milieu. However, later in life this Bildung may become subject to (ii) questioning and critique as a result of higher education, and this, Hegel holds, is one goal of historical study. Through this study, and the awareness of the historical variability of belief and conduct that it creates, the individual may come to relate to her own historical context in a more reflective way than previously. Gadamer invokes Hegel’s account of Bildung in sense (ii) in his theory of the purpose of the historical sciences when arguing that the claims of the past may and should challenge the presuppositions of the present. But Gadamer also argues that the scope of Bildung in sense (ii) is restricted by the individual’s unreflective reliance on presuppositions of her own historical context, and thus (ultimately) by Bildung in sense (i).
