    Abstract

    The concept of 'the whole world as a school' is deeply rooted in the European tradition. We find it in Nicholas of Cusa as well as in texts of Paracelsus, Alsted, and Comenius. And not much younger is the practice that embodies this concept like no other: the educating or formative journey, or – as it is known in German: die Bildungsreise.
