Contingency and Natality. The Relationship between the Pedagogical and the Political in a World out of Joint

Based on theories of political difference and their processing in the context of the philosophy of education, the article addresses the problem of justifying pedagogical action. With the help of Hannah Arendt’s reflections on education in a world out of joint, a perspective is unfolded that focuses on contingency as a central feature of the political dimension of pedagogy, without speaking of a radical postmodern liquefaction that would make institutionalized education impossible. Arendt’s concept of natality can be understood as a productive thought concerning the relation between education and democracy.
