Abstract: Can (and, if so, how can) instruction and schooling play a role in the problematization of the sciences and in the limitation and assessment of the implications of a universalized scientific rationality? Starting from a reflection on the concept of education in relation to the significance of science and ethical judgement, the author sketches some of the contours of an organization of schooling not characterized by a technical pattern. It is shown that the above mentioned assessment and limitation are not included through the mediation of or introduction into a "new" ethics but, rather, through an integration of scientific findings into a process of thinking which confronts this knowledge and this scientific rationality with the ethical challenges of society. It is not the demand for truth (science) that "educates" but, rather, thus the author's thesis, the ethical claim.
