Summary / Zusammenfassung Teaching knowledge is a central concern of institutionalised learning at schools. However, the design and interpretation of learning arrangements is often based on a concept of knowledge which never becomes the object of explicit reflection in a didactic context. This research project (Habilitation) aims to reflect the concept of knowledge with relation to its foundations in language philosophy, epistemology and knowledge theory. Also, it aims to investigate the didactic consequences of these reflections on knowledge. For that purpose, findings from theoretical philosophy, psychology of cognition and general didactics will be compared and contrasted.
