philosophy of education, e-learning, phenomenology, Comenius, covid-19


This paper is part of a postgraduate research project examining the possibilities and limits of e-learning. The aim of this study is a philosophical reflection on e-learning during the Covid-19 pandemic from the perspective of the Czech philosophy of education and phenomenology. E-learning has become an integral part of the educational process in recent years, especially due to the Covid-induced lockdowns between 2020 and 2022. Based on the background of the Czech philosophy of education, this paper examines the characteristics, possibilities, and limits of the e-learning method.
