Bildung aims at maturity, reflexivity, social judgment, aesthetic and political consciousness and competence of action. The book analyses the different traditions and approaches relevant for the development of the question of conceptualizing Bildung. Especially the emphasis on 'maturity' ;political consciousness' and 'competence of action' is a useful one when dealing with the democratic tradition as the alternative to contemporary attemps of neoliberalism leading to the rule of economy and the decline of the public.
