Plakat Tagung Education Justice Human Good.jpg

 

The aim of this conference is to bring together philosophers from various perspectives to reveal the relevance of questions on the human good for questions of educational aims and educational justice. Issues to be addressed include: In what sense should justice, fairness and equality be realized in the educational system? What does the concept of equality of opportunity demand here? What does the reference to sufficiency (in contrast to equality) demand with regard to education? And what impacts do considerations about the human good have on the mentioned issues?
