Human Dignity within Teacher Education: A Matter of Individualism, Competitiveness, and Strategic Rationality
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Science and Engineering, School of Natural Sciences.
2011 (English)In: Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, ISSN 0742-051X, E-ISSN 1879-2480, Vol. 27, no 8, p. 1245-1254Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Human dignity is a grand concept that is assumed to play an important role in education. However, no widely accepted universal definition of human dignity exists. The aim of this study was to examine the Discourse of Human Dignity within teacher education, especially with respect to how Swedish teacher educators make meaning of the concept of human dignity. Findings show that four subdiscourses are involved in the Discourse of Human Dignity within teacher education. These discursive constructions are influences by outcomes of, for example, life-science research, and British and/or American media discourses.
