Abstract


The liberal education is ultimately about a freedom. It consists in considering the existential questions and revaluating initial social expectations. It is, in fact, a concern for humanity. Schools, and especially, universities, are the privileged places of such care, and they are important for individual development and the quality of the public sphere. Today, the tradition of liberal education has been destroyed. The climate of consumerism and irresponsible market education reforms hit the essence of education and condemn pupils, students and teachers to fate of a hostage of the environment and moment. However, one cannot give up on the society of empathetic people, therefore, the liberal education must be reanimated.


Keywords
