|Title||Biography and the Educative|
Often modern institutionalised notions of the educative connect less to education as a means through which individuals and society can improve, but more with education as the conduit by which to achieve a particular career. Both these notions are of equal importance because of the dynamics in which modern day education exists. In this study I will explore educational influences in an individual life in terms of a broader notion of the educative. This is achieved through the combination of Bildung (a German concept that concentrates on self-formation, education and cultivation), traditional biographical and art historical analysis, and Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of the habitus.
