Title Interdisciplinary Worldview Studies within the High-School Curriculum for Religious Education in Sweden
Author Älverbrandt, Daniel R.
Date 2016
English abstract
Worldview studies among high-school students is a strategic way of building an attitude of respect and dialogue between citizens in the increasingly multi-cultural society of Sweden. First of all, academic research by professors in philosophy and education from different countries, express the importance of worldview studies among students. Secondly, established experience in several educational institutes, as well as among many students, confirm that worldview studies leads to better understanding of self and others. Thirdly, with the increasing number of immigrants in Sweden, there is a great need of constructive forums for dialogue concerning different worldviews. Considering academic research, established experience as well as the immigration crisis in Sweden this essay investigates and argues the thesis that an increased emphasis on worldview studies within the Swedish high-school curriculum is a strategic and pedagogical way of building bridges of dialogue and respect in our society.
