Hegel and Gadamer on Bildung
2008 (English)In: The Southern Journal of Philosophy, ISSN 0038-4283, E-ISSN 2041-6962, Vol. 46, no 4, p. 559-80Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Hegel argues that Bildung (cultivation or education) involves an ability to reflect on one’s habitual beliefs in a detached, uncommitted way. According to Hegel, the educated (gebildete) individual is able to consider a manifold of standpoints on a given issue through awareness of the historical and cultural variability of basic beliefs. Hans-Georg Gadamer invokes Hegel’s account of Bildung, arguing that historical study creates awareness of cognitive plurality and change, and thus permits current presuppositions (Vorurteile) to become more reflected. The paper mainly tries to show three things: (i) that Hegel is a source of inspiration for Gadamer in this regard, but that there are also important differences between their accounts of Bildung; (ii) that these accounts are not unambiguous; and (iii) that Gadamer, in particular, makes somewhat elusive claims on the power of Bildung.
