Abstract [en]

This article is about how dance knowledge is seen though syllabuses in the Swedish upper secondary school. The researchers are using Spiegelberg´s method of analysis and the study is focusing upon syllabuses from two different curricula, Lpf94 and Gy11. The study is based on phenomenological philosophy. A phenomenological way of thinking allows that human beings are inter-subjective linked with and within the world. A basic rule and the starting point for research within the philosophy of life-world-phenomenology is to turn towards the things themselves and to be adherent to the things. The analysis of is resulting in two images over how dance knowledge is appearing in the syllabuses. The study shows that dance knowledge is constituted differently between the curricula.
