The paper deals with the analysis of the notion of paidea in a wide context starting from antiquity till post-modern century. It is stressed that the actualization of Greek-Roman ideal of universal education (παιδɛία, humanitas universalis) by means of phenomenological discourse lies in the tradition founded by E. Husserl and linked with spiritual heritage of Antiquity. Within the concept of ontopoesis of A.T. Tymieniecka, one can easily see an attempt to actualize the whole specter of intuitive meanings of antique notion ϕύσις. Thanks to it paidea will find a new and deeper interpretation.
