Hamlet in Wittenberg: 

Civic and Princely Education in Early Modern Europe

A Workshop at the Institute of Philosophy of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest.

Organisers: Ferenc Hörcher and Adam Smrcz


"Their approach to the reform of politics was quite different from that advocated by modern republicans. For them, education in virtue was the key to a successful polity; it was worth more than any number of laws, regulations and policies; it transcended the whole question of constitutions and even of political liberty. The humanists saw liberty as the reward of virtue, not its precondition; it was something to be merited, not a prescriptive right. All this seems foreign to our modern sensibilities. But that is not to say that the humanists' political thought is irrelevant to the modern world."
