Resumo

Demarcation of nature from culture is based on the dialogical polarity of first and second person constitutive of human beings. By means of the ancient categories of doing (I-role, i.e., Self) and suffering (You-role, i.e., Other) it is possible to capture conceptually the process of self-education as comprising both individuation and socialization on the level of non-verbal activity (man as a social animal) as well as on the level of verbal activity (man as a rational animal). As a consequence, the clash between the two theories of the cultural process that govern our intellectual history – is it a process of progress or one of decline? – which is exhibited as the background feeding especially the present day controversy between communitarianism (being a version of romantic individualism) and liberalism (being a version of enlightened universalism) will be resolved.
