The orientation of the writers is rooted in Continental education that is a broad moral, complex, and multidimensional inter-generational discipline and practice. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development effort has resulted in a world-wide functional and economically based system aiming at educational control and success. “The cultural-existential discussion that used to be the point and the end of education, increasingly found solutions in a specialized interdisciplinary and professionally oriented education locked up in educational institutions”. Existential education is a moral interest in the lifeworld of children and young people, and in adult attention to the lived meaning of the pedagogical relationship with the young. The existential dialogue of education never ends. It is an ongoing commitment and responsible attention to human life and its concerns.
