Abstract

This paper reports the results of a field study of “folk high schools” in four Scandinavian countries, including historical and cultural perspectives and analyses of Grundtvigian educational ideology, student experience in the folkehøjskole and the teaching culture. The radical humanism embodied in practice in the folkehøjskole may provide a useful resource for broadening and deepening the exposure of American students to humanistic ends.
