Remigius Stoelzle

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Remigius Stölzle (born November 23, 1856 in Ob ; † July 23, 1921 in Würzburg ) was a German philosopher .


Stölzle studied in Munich and at the University of Würzburg . After graduating as Dr. phil. in Würzburg in 1882 he initially worked as a high school teacher in Augsburg and Würzburg. In 1894 he became a full professor at the University of Würzburg.

Stölzle resisted the efforts within the educational reform to lose sight of "religious-moral" educational and life goals. In a lecture in autumn 1918, published in the journal Pharus 1919, he pointed out that in connection with the discussions about school reform, not only all previous organizations and curricula, but also the educational goals of the school, were fundamentally up for discussion. So "more and more voices in educational and political circles are loud, which, in the interest of a modern school design, shape the educational goal purely on this side and want that religious education to be eliminated from the public school system."
