This article is divided in three parts. The first deals with the fundaments of education with a particular reference made to the human person. Education is that cultural process which consists of the integral development of man's personality.
Herein the following concepts are analyzed: education in its dynamic and legal sense; education as development, that is as qualitative evolution: education is only truly such if we consider man as an integral being, that is from the viewpoint of the different manifestations of his life, namely the physical, intellectual, moral, social and supernatural aspects. Only in this way can we grasp man's personality in the fullest sense.
The second part deals with the fundaments of education with reference to man as a social being. In this sense the author first analyzes the juridical structure of education: the rights of those being taught, and the rights of parents, State and Church in their roles as educators. Immediately afterwards, the author studies the social roles of family, school, State and Church as institutions which are engaged in the process of educating.
Thus stated, albeit in a highly sketchy fashion, the philosophical and social fundaments of education are then confronted with some of the main characteristics of contemporary civilization, in order to explain why modern society is gradually relinquishing the onthological and moral foundations of education, thereby paving the way for the rise of a series of problems which are currently afflicting modern times.
