This paper is an attempt to explore the educational meaning of the self and society from a communitarian perspective. To this end, I introduce the conception of communitarianism focusing on high communitarianism , and outline the liberal-communitarian debate on the self and society matter. On the basis of this debate, I consider two possible communitarian interpretations of the social constitution of the self and also suggest the possible educational implications, both mild and strong. In the end, I take up the view that the self should be understood against the social background to which one belongs, and education should also be grasped in terms of which initiates people into a wide range of social practices.
