Title "Bildung" as ideal in science research environments
Author(s) Sjöström, Jesper
Date 2007
English abstract
In our risk society and age of supercomplexity there is an urgent need for reflecting, freely thinking, and responsible-taking citizens, or with one term: Bildung. This term has many tensions, especially between knowledge processes and knowledge products. Ideals of Bildung emphasizing the former are called “formal”, and such emphasizing the latter “material”. This paper mainly discusses different ideals of Bildung. It is done by help from an empirically based “four-field-model”, with academic emphasis on one axis and socio-scientific orientation on the other. The model was developed after a series of in-depth interviews with PhD students about their views of research, science and the environment. Furthermore, the paper argues for Bildung-oriented scholarships of teaching and learning, aiming at civic Bildung.
