The Struggle Between Conflicting Beliefs. On the Promise of Education

Abstract [en]

Education is thought to provide a certain outcome—a

promise. I argue that a promise that

education will counteract cultural and social disintegration involves a risk of engendering

narrow social and cultural incorporation. On what reasonable basis could education contribute

to civic life, when contemporary Western society is represented by a diversity of lifestyles

and beliefs, with roots in different traditions? Habermas’s communicative theory and theory

of procedural democracy contain a normative core of presuppositions that function as

enabling conditions for practical discourse to take place under such conditions. However,

Habermas’s perspective conceptualizes these presuppositions as features of a political

culture whose ‘accommodating quality’ citizens need to be able to expect sociologically.

Within a political and moral theory, Habermas only counts on these preconditions

implicitly, but he does hope for such accommodating qualities to be fulfilled in a process of

socialization and in political forms of life.
