Description

Daniel Tröhler, University of Vienna, is presenting a lecture titled: "The dignity of Protestant souls and trajectories in the educationalization of the world: the lasting legacy of the European Reformation of the 16th century."

This lecture engages with the lasting effects of the European Reformation that is said to have started 500 years ago in 1517 and the outstanding importance of the soul of the individual as instance for salvation. This highlighting of the soul of the individual made possible a particular way to make sense of the world that over the centuries lead to the general idea of modern education as technology in order to create the modern self: Empowered to participate in the development of the world and at the same time morally self-reflexive and steadfast to tame these developments. German Lutheranism and Swiss/US-American reformed Zwingliansim/Calvinism, culminating around 1800, are explored as conflicting conceptions of “the educated” soul: the ideas of Bildung and the virtuous citizen.
