Scientific Roundtable in Copenhagen

This is it: the book is officially available, and we opened the day with our sixth roundtable, this time in the heart of Copenhagen in Vartov:

The fellow kneeling in front is pastor Niels Frederik Severin Grundtvig, the father of folk-Bildung. The beautiful old building is today the cultural center promoting his legacy.

The Grundtvig research center and the Søren Kierkegaard Research Centre are both under the Vartov roof.

11 people joined our roundtable.

Per Paludan (the Danish Adult Education Association), Nadja Pass (Samtidens Akademi), Bente Meinhardt (Clavis Danish for foreigners), Peter Bendix (Danish Free School Association) (hidden behind Nadja), Lisbeth Trinskjær (chairman of the Danish Folk High School Association), Joachim Juel Vædele (CEO Vartov), Jakob Kvist (philosopher), Dan Andersen (historian), Flemming Jørgensen (COOP and Samvirke), and Teddy Hebo Larsen (CEO, entrepreneur and author), Hans Grishauge (who is not in the picture at all), Lene and Tomas.

These are not the best pictures and we particularly ought to have had a better picture of Dan (fourth from the left): he did not buy the main points of The Nordic Secret and gave us the harshest criticism we have faced so far. We thus strongly urge Dan to share his view points and open the debate here on the website.
