Philosophy and education in María Zambrano

Ángel Casado y Juana Sánchez-Gey


This paper briefly summarises the strong relation between philosophy and education in the works of Maria Zambrano (1904-1991), analysing some main points of his educational thinking, closely related with his vital experience, in the context of his ethical-philosophical propositions, linked to his notion of «poetry reason». In this way, underlines the big concern of Zambrano for the «mediator» function of education, as a form of «humanization» and personâ?? development, in his individual and social aspect, connected with the deep educational worth of the philosophical thinking.
