Abstract [sv]

I den vetenskapliga essäns form undersöker jag hur dagens styrningsideal och metoder påverkar vårdarens möjligheter att utveckla och praktisera fronesis. Fronesis är den benämning som filosofen Aristoteles använder om praktisk kunskap och klokt omdöme. Jag undersöker också hur styrningsidealen påverkar människosyn och bildningens villkor i ett vidare samhällsperspektiv. Jag ger utrymme åt begreppsutredning av fronesis eftersom det är en kunskapsform som har stor giltighet i sjukvården liksom i de flesta yrken där fokus ligger på det mellanmänskliga mötet och dess möjligheter men även utmaningar. Jag diskuterar mellanrummens betydelse och vikten av att ta ansvar för det som finns där. Det visar sig att i mellanrummen finns humanvetenskapen och vårdkonsten. Utan dessa riskerar det mellanmänskliga mötets underverk att utebli och det etiska vetandet att ersättas av ren rationalism. I min undersökning kommer jag fram till att hermeneutiken är en möjlighetsfilosofi i mötet med New Public Management. Alternativet som växer fram kan bli New Public Phronesis.

Abstract [en]

By using the scientific essay as a method, I investigate how today's governing ideals and methods affect the healthcare provider's ability to develop and practice fronesis. Fronesis is the term used by philosopher Aristotle on practical knowledge and wise judgment. I also investigate how the governance ideals affects view of man and the conditions of cultivation in a broader social perspective. I devote myself to the concept of fronesis because it is a form of knowledge which is of great value in health care, as well as in most professions with focus on interpersonal meetings with opportunities but also challenges. I discuss the importance of spaces and the importance of taking responsibility for what´s in there. It turns out that the spaces are where human science and art of care is practiced. Without these, the miracle of interpersonal meeting risks losing out and ethical knowledge to be replaced by pure rationalism. In my survey, I conclude that Hermeneutics is a philosophy of opportunities in meeting New Public Management. The emerging alternative might be New Public Phronesis.
