Kunskap i skolan : enligt Folkpartiet och Vänsterpartiet

by Hassani, Arash; Sennevall, Jimmy

Abstract (Summary)
Knowledge is frequently discussed in modern society, and has been since ancient Greece. Our goal is to examine the content of two political documents with the desire to point out their visions about how the Swedish school system should be shaped, in relations to knowledge. More precise this essay is going to concentrate on two specific political parties, Folkpartiet and Vansterpartiet and their official programs on the subject school and education, to see what they say about knowledge. The choice is made on the basis that these parties political standings differ most from each other, in the left/right scale in politics. The qualitative analysis takes its main base from Aristotels concepts of knowledge; Episteme, techne and fronesis, and Bernt Gustavssons modern defenitions of them. The study showed that Folkpartiet want knowledge related to episteme to be the main source of education through out the school system, while Vansterpartiet want fronesis as the central form of knowledge.
