Abstract

"Human Worth – A Challenge for School and Society addresses the question of whether all human beings’ lives have equal value. To answer, the authors examine how we should understand the value of human life. Human worth and equality are both fundamental principles in education, but there are countless examples of how difficult these concepts can be in actual practice. There is also scant discussion within the school system that touches on our understanding of what human worth in school is. Insofar as school is society’s most important vehicle for human learning and development, we view understanding human worth as a challenge our entire society faces. This book is an anthology in nine chapters about human worth in such typically ‘humanity-oriented’ school subjects as pedagogics, philosophy, social studies, religion, Norwegian, and arts and crafts. The book provides and introduction to defining human worth from a variety of theoretical perspectives, with examples from school and everyday life. The individual chapters pose questions about dignity, equality, inclusion and exclusion, and the resources human beings engage in meeting challenges. "

Abstract

"We live in a diverse society characterized by different and to some extent contradictory values. Sometimes they create community. Other times they generate value conflicts. In this book, twelve Norwegian researchers write about such value conflicts and the way they occur in working life and the public sphere. Common to many of the contributions of this book is the attempt to highlight so-called value-based community of disagreement. This means that we agree to disagree. As a society, citizens can try to gather around some shared, fundamental values, but we cannot demand that all the members of the society agree on personal values. "

Abstract

"At the time of this book’s publication, almost seven years have passed since the dramatic and brutal terror attacks at Norway’s Government Headquarters in Oslo and the island of Utøya on 22 July 2011. How have we coped during this time? Which values have been important? Have we managed to protect the ideals of democracy, openness and humanity? And not least: Who is this ""we"" that we are referring to? This scholarly anthology includes articles from researchers associated with the project NECORE (Negotiating Values: Collective Identities and Resilience after 22 July) and other researchers whose work is closely associated with the project. They give us insights, opinions and sharp perspectives on not just 22 July, but also about Norway today, about values, identities and resilience in Norwegian society in the wake of the terror attacks. An important backdrop for the book and the project is the assertion that, as the events themselves recede into the past, it is even more important to focus on what the terror events have led to and how we can learn from them. In a world where terrorism has become an all too common part of political reality, it is crucial that we understand how we ought to think about terror, and how we as a society encounter it."
