Our collection of publications on education is distinguished above all by those by the Deutsche Comenius Gesellschaft (German Comenius Society).

Academia publishes the Comenius Yearbook annually, which addresses the work, life and influence of Johann Amos Comenius (1592–1670). In addition, the series Philosophieren mit Kindern (Philosophising with Children) and Bewegtes Lernen (Learning in Motion) contain important publications, including didactic and methodological ones, for teaching in practice.
