Abstract [en]

Education has always been a topic of hot discussion and debate, in recent years the discussion about the humanities place in education and society has come to be renewed. The debate about the humanities in higher education in Sweden can be traced back as long as the 1930’s but the renewed debate have one new actor: the commercial and industrial life in Sweden. The aspectof the commercial and industrial life’s side of the debate has so far not been especiallyexplored by Swedish academics. In this essay the commercial and industrial life’s way of viewing the humanities are analysed and discussed. The material for the essay is concentrated to a ten year span, namely the period from 2005 to 2015. The aim with the essay was to see what sorts of problems the commercial and industrial life in Sweden described and what kinds of solutions they proposed on those problems, and to figure out why they presented these problems and solutions. In the analysis several themes of different kinds of problems and solutions was found, these themes was then discussed in order to conclude how the commercial and industrial life in Sweden viewed the humanities during this time period. The analysis concludes that the commercial and industrial life in Sweden primarily describes the problems and suggested solutions concerning the humanities in relation to the labour market. The commercial and industrial life is worried about the welfare of the state seen how to few people with an education in the humanities get employed after their examination. The study also concludes that the problems and solutions described by the commercial and industrial life are presented in the context of how society value economical rather than cultural aspects of life.
