Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to widen the understanding of the conditions of knowledge formation. Since it is, as will be argued, partly unconscious and automatized, it is also partly out of our control. Various theories which pay attention to unconscious and automatized knowledge formation are described. As the reasoning deals with a number of complex processes about man, culture, language and science, it should be seen as a palette of possible angles. The possibility of strict rationality will, in the light of these supposed circumstances, be elaborated on in relation to Bacon’s concept of Idols and to folk theories. The latter are picked up from popular culture and used in our daily efforts to make sense of events and actions. Folk theories could be seen as a modern interpretation of Idols. By means of two examples, the relevant educational implications will be illustrated. One of the cases refers to critical thinking and the other one to feedback in higher education. The final section suggests how to handle a situation with a partly unconscious knowledge formation, which requires for instance to be more humble or more open-minded.
