The relevance of the existing processes of change returns visibility to the Mediterranean both as a geographical area and in its various cultural forms. This double relevance justifies a sociological review of related educational issues. Moving from a perspective that considers education as a dynamic element, closely connected to the complex socio-cultural Mediterranean context, the aim of this paper is to reconstruct the outstanding features of the Mediterranean area and to provide a possible contribution to a more human evolution of the present social context, through the achievement of a socialization model based on the person and the improvement of relational dynamics. It focuses on an analytical perspective as opposed to perspectives which consider the subject as a variable dependent on the context. In the first part we provide the most important contributions to the Mediterranean question, while the second section raises some important cultural questions. The conclusions consider the prevailing educational model and trace the main features of a new alternative.
