Description
Summary:Apart from the impact of his educational ideas on some parts of the Southern hemisphere, most notably India, GrundtvigAes viewpoint on human nature and human society, on the relationship between national and international community, on the inner dynamic which sustains and drives forward the Christian tradition remains remarkably little known outside his own country. In recent years, however this situation has begun to change. GrundtvigAes thought is being more widely studied and discussed in an international perspective. This fascinating and varied collection of essays, mostly European and North American, illustrated this new development. It suggests that in N.F.S Grundtvig we have a 19th century thinker with unexpected relevance to the dilemmas of the new century.
