Europe's Importance for World Education
Keywords: Europe, educational values, philosophy of education, critical thinking
Educational thinking has deep roots in the intellectual history of Europe. It is tightly
connected with religious traditions and also with the liberation from religious constraints.
We cannot but help children and youth to feel safe and secure in the world. This is the
base to cope with experiences which show us that very often the world is unsafe and
insecure. We must dig for basic ideas, narratives, pictures, impressions which can convey
the feeling that the world is good, beautiful and true. We should not neglect or deny this
when we explain scientific phenomena of nature and of history.
