Existential Responsibility - The Civic Virtue

Studies in Philosophy and Education 17 (4):261-270 (1998)

Responsibility can cast light on the context of consensus, conflict, and education. In terms of juridical responsibility, the person responds to a defined claim or duty. Education as an alive relationship between unique persons is characterized by existential responsibility - the response to a unique and problematic situation. Depending on which kind of society we are referring to, responsibility will serve society best as juridical responsibility when it is a ‘closed society’ and as existential responsibility when it is an ‘open’ democratic society. Education as such will create the potentiality of provocation of conflicts in any kind of society
