Drawing upon philosophical hermeneutics, this paper considers the interpretive condition of human being. It offers an account of education which understands the reduction, interpretation, and representation of the world to the young as an essential feature of our hermeneutical condition. Inspired by Klaus Mollenhauer’s Forgotten Connections: On Culture and Upbringing, the paper explores the liits of pedagogical representation and the general problems of reduction by way of two contrasting pedagogical texts: Comenius’ “Orbis Sensualium Pictus,” and the Zen Buddhist training text The Ten Bulls.
