Abstract

A comprehensive introduction to P. Sloterdijk’s social and educational philosophy is connected with their verifications. It is analyzed in the context of the anthropologicaltechnical
turn the concepts of exercises, habits, inertia and post-passivity as a foundation of education which may change the human being. The connection of philosophy and educational practices from the ancient Greeks to Modernity in Sloterdijk’s version is traced. The return of philosophy to life is regarded as actualization of paideia that makes its educational potential active. The construction of a new role of reality in the education is explicated. The tendency of pedagogical invasion into politics is a dominant motif of Sloterdijk’s arguing on the borders of the open pedagogical province as the place of intensive pedagogical interaction. The contradictions between school raison and state raison and their consequences are showed. Sloterdijk’s explorations in the educational and political fields can be applied to analyzing Ukrainian realities.
