Abstract [en]

In this article a prosopography regarding the people who engaged in the professional debate on geometry instruction at the lower secondary level in Sweden during the period 1905-1962 is presented. The analysis is based on Bourdieu’s theory on capital and field. The main focus of the investigation is a debate in the teacher periodical Elementa. Certain aspects of the debaters’ backgrounds and their arguments are treated. The primary finding is that the debate has features of a field. This result is used to illuminate further known facts and previous research.
