Folkeoplysningens historie i Danmark, Norge og Sverige. Hvordan blev de nordiske landes succes skabt? Hvad er dannelse? - How do societies go through major technological, economic and structural changes peacefully? The ways in which Denmark, Norway and Sweden went from feudal agricultural societies to industrialized democracies were exceptionally peaceful. In the process, they climbed from the bottom of the European economy around 1860 to the very top as of the 1930s and have remained prosperous and progressive ever since. Finland made a similar journey after 1918 in just 30 years. They also invented Scandinavian design and are often ranked among the world's happiest peoples. This book explores how they did it.
En debatbog om fremtidens by; i samarbejde med Nordic City Network.Teknologi er ikke i sig selv svaret på fremtidens udfordringer, mennesker er. Vi kommer til at anvende teknologier på helt nye måder, og teknologier kommer til at spille helt nye roller i vores liv og vores samfund. Men det må være mennesket og vores liv, der er udgangspunktet. Vores udfordring er derfor, at den teknologiske udvikling ikke løber os over ende, men at vi skaber en udvikling, som er meningsfuld for os som mennesker og giver os muligheder for gode liv.
The Trump presidency is the symptom of something much bigger and it is not the first time it has happened. Our meaning-making has not been able to keep up with technology and globalization. We navigate an increasingly complex world using models that were developed for industrialization—at a time when traditional industry is disappearing. This kind of mismatch between our real world and our understanding of it has happened before. The Reformation, the French Revolution and World War II were all results of old epistemologies reaching their limit and new ones not being able to emerge without a bloodbath. Given that we have the knowledge we have, can we avoid the bloodbath and go straight to the peace negotiations? Can we develop the culture, education, aesthetics, and institutions that we need in order to handle the complexities of the 21st century? Based on recurring historical patterns, moral and developmental psychology and complex-systems theory, Lene Rachel Andersen analyzes the current state of Western politics and makes a strong case for hope and a better future.
