Abstract

The notion of the so-called life enlightenment (livsoplysning) and the concepts elaborated by N. F. S. Grundtvig and his work on residential adult education centers form the fundamental principles of the Danish school system. A significant goal of Danish education is not just the acquisition of theoretical knowledge, but the acquisition of practical knowledge that provides an explanation of and orientation in life.
