Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This paper takes its point of departure in the assumption that institutional philosophy is faced with challenges in the contemporary knowledge society of Denmark, partly due to the rise of the notion of knowledge economy. A theoretical framework is set by John Dewey and Jean-Francois Lyotard in order to assess how American pragmatism, as well as the postmodern society in which meta-narratives are rejected, are able to construct a new approach to institutional philosophy. Furthermore, the applied philosophy course at Aalborg University is taken into account as a reflection of how John Deweys pragmatic approach to philosophy can be incorporated. The paper finds that the respective aspects of the knowledge society, pragmatism and applied philosophy play well together in order to establish a new understanding of the value of institutional philosophy.
