ORTIZ-SORIANO, Agustina. Kantian perspective on the state and education. Sophia [online]. 2023, n.35, pp.159-183. ISSN 1390-8626.

This paper analyzes the role of education in the practical philosophy of Immanuel The present work analyzes the position of education and the state in the practical philosophy of Immanuel Kant, for whom education is established as the essential task of humanity, not in vain he pointed out that, that man can consider as the discoveries more difficult the art of government, and the art of education, which is with which the process by which the human being becomes human begins; that of civilization and culture, intrinsic elements in the sphere of education; which is the basis of the development of people in particular, and of humanity in general, for which the theses on education in the text of pedagogy must be reviewed, which suggests that the cosmopolitan educational project is the best way to promote an education that tends towards the universal good.

However, in order for the Kantian proposal to be promoted from educational institutions, it is necessary to reconsider the task and function not only of parents, but also of the State in the educational sphere and guide it according to the parameters of cosmopolitanism, a philosophy that is both offered as an unavoidable duty and as a pervasive social need. The definition of cosmopolitan education is presented as a method of human growth that enables the identification of beings with moral and legal personality in each of us.

Keywords : Education; cosmopolitanism; pedagogy; humanity; inclusion; State.
