Grundtvig’s ideas about enlightenment for life continue to be relevant as a critical counterweight to a way of thinking about school and education centred around so called ‘purposeful’ competences and the needs of business.

Regner Birkelund focuses on the concept of enlightenment for life as expressed particularly in Grundtvig, Plato and K.E. Løgstrup, and four narratives reflect aspects of enlightenment in folk high school practice today.
