Formation or Probation?

Rupnik is proposing to drop the word 'formation' because too external: the imposition of a form. However, once again, as in the case of the word preventive, we might lose all the echoes and connotations. Form is not necessarily external, as any good Thomist knows. The Germans talk about Bildung, from Bild, which is image, or picture, or form. Gadamer has great things to say about this in the first chapter of his Truth and Method
