In this paper some considerations are presented on the subjectivity as one of the core philosophical conceptions construing the disciplinary field of 'general education'. The particular focus is on the changeover that we witness nowadays within the philosophical ideas on subject and subjectivity. Herein, the vivid debate between defining subjectivity in essential terms, as it is presented within 'classical' philosophy of Enlightenment, and poststructuralist views that deconstruct the Enlightenment idea of autonomous and absolute 'Self' takes place. The question of subjectivity and its contemporary transformations touches the very educational problem of cultivating humanity throughout the process of education.
