The Young and the Other: Students' Voices about Encounters with Faith
Naeslund, Lars
Religious Education, v104 n2 p166-196 Mar-Apr 2009
The impact of committed guests in Religious Education at school is focused in this study. Ten pupils (age 17) were sampled to contribute as informants in semi-structured interviews. The data consist of eight texts (interview excerpts), which are interpreted within a hermeneutic approach, specifically by taking the formal features into consideration (cf. Ricoeur), for example, the occurrence of negations. Some of the texts illuminate I-Thou relations (Buber), whereas other texts are interpreted in relation to the effect histories of certain conceptions (Gadamer).
