Forberedende bemærkninger til en eksistensdidaktik inden for undervisningsemnet etik i kristendomskundskab i den danske grundskole
Nyckelord:Eksistens, etik kristendomskundskab, Hartmut Rosa
The paper addresses ethics education, which is a compulsory part of the subject Christianity (kristendomskundskab) in the Danish public school (primary and lower secondary education). It will be argued that an existential content related to religion and ethics is essential for the students understanding of what it means to be a human being in the world. The paper draws on Hartmut Rosa’s concepts of the ‘uncontrollable’ and ‘resonance’, which offer an existential perspective on modern man’s possible way of relating to the world. The paper outlines the purpose of teaching ethics and discusses the tension between the religious dimension, curriculum objectives, and general education.
