Beiträge zur Pädagogik
Edited by Academia Verlag
The in-house “Beiträge zur Pädagogik” (Contributions to Pedagogy) gather outstanding publications in the field of educational science and cover a broad spectrum. Approaches to reform pedagogy find just as much a place as studies on educational theory and the influence of stays abroad on pupils. Qualification theses from the dissertation onwards are particularly welcome.
Edited by Prof. Dr. habil Christina Müller, head of the project „Bewegte Schule“ at Leipzig University.
The series Bewegtes Lernen provides (aspiring) teachers of both primary and secondary schools with theoretical methods and practical approaches concerning a motion-based method of learning. Teachers and teacher trainees will find specific excersizes tailored to their respective subjects as well as an overview to the benefits of motion in achieving learning success.
Philosophieren mit Kindern
“Philosophieren mit Kindern” (Philosophising with Children) is a long-standing project of the Austrian Society for Philosophy with Children under the direction of Mag. Dr. Dr. h.c. Daniela G. Camhy. The aim is to introduce children to philosophy through stories in a playful way by discussing the questions about life, nature and the world posed in the stories. The stories and accompanying manuals written by the pioneer of children’s philosophy, Matthew Lipman, have been translated and updated for today by Daniela G. Camhy.
Schriften der Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Kinderphilosophie
Every year, an International Congress on Philosophy of Children takes place in Graz under a specific motto. This series bundles the conference proceedings of these congresses with a selection of the manifold lectures. As a scientific complement to the more practically oriented publications of the “Philosophieren mit Kindern” series, both form the publisher’s “Children’s Philosophy” cluster.
Schriften zur Comenius-Forschung
Edited on behalf of the German Comenius Society, by Andreas Fritsch, Andreas Lischewski and Uwe Voigt.
Parallel to the Comenius Yearbook, monographs and anthologies on the diverse writings and approaches of Johan Amos Comenius are published in this series. Like Comenius himself, the publications move in the field of tension between religion, philosophy. Pedagogy and literature.
Published on behalf of the German Comenius Society, by Andreas Fritsch, Andreas Lischewski and Uwe Voigt.
The Comenius Yearbook is an interdisciplinary and international publication for all research dealing in the broadest sense with the cultural, intellectual and religious history of the 16th and 17th centuries in particular. It takes into account both their historical preconditions and their impact in the modern age, with a focus on developments in Central Europe as well as the neighbouring regions to the east and south-east.
One of the most important early modern polymaths, the Bohemian-Moravian educator, humanist and theologian Johann Amos Comenius (1592-1670), serves as the eponym. As an exile, he travelled throughout Europe and was in contact with many outstanding scientists, politicians and theologians of his time. At the same time, he attempted to integrate the knowledge of the time into a comprehensive doctrine of wisdom, which he called Pansophia. On its basis, he ultimately wanted to bring about a Panorthosia, a comprehensive improvement of human affairs through far-reaching reforms in science, politics and religion. The Comenius Yearbook is also committed to a critical and constructive engagement with this concern.
