Marcus Tullius Cicero’s concept on education through culture

History of Education and Children's Literature. 2020. Vol. XV. No. 2. P. 389-406.
Pichugina V., Volkova Y.

The article analyzes Mark Tullius Cicero’s speeches, writings and letters of different years, in which he touches upon the issues of education through culture in the educational space of the ancient city. Expressing his opinion on the theatre, poetry and art (in the broad sense of the word, including the art of living and the art of speech), Cicero not only emphasized the educational power of culture, but also pointed to its educational weakness, which takes place if the functions of culture are reduced to mere entertainment.
