Abeunt Studia in Mores

A Festschrift for Helga Doblin on Philosophies of Education, and Personal Learning or Teaching in the Humanities and Moral Sciences

Sarah W. Merrill

A fun-to-read interdisciplinary Festschrift for a remarkable woman, this book belongs in the personal and institutional libraries of teachers, philosophers of education, socio-linguists, philosophers of love and sexuality and philosophers of language, Germanistik and Classics scholars, and those looking for practical wisdom and entertainment in uses of themes and personalities from antiquity ranging over numerous centuries. Of particular interest to scholars in moral development theory and feminist theory and practice, this unusual collection develops themes from numerous contemporary debates about the nature and methods of education: how gender, class, and community orientation influence moral discourse and development, from Socrates to Kohlberg and Habermas.
