Title [sv]
Kollektivets fronesis. En undersökning av kollektivitet, besultsfattande och professionella överväganden i välfärdsyrken i Sverige och Tyskland
Title [en]
Collective Phronesis. A survey of collectivity, decision making and professional considerations in the welfare professions in Sweden and Germany
Abstract [en]
The project examines whether, and if so how, Phronesis (Practical Wisdom) could be understood as a collective capability, and if so, in what way this knowledge is expressed and understood. The project combines philosophical investigations of the concept of collective phronesis with a study of how professionals in the education system, the police force and healthcare institutions in Sweden and Germany – understand and relate to this very concept. The project consists of three subprojects and a joint collection of empirical data through ethnographic and qualitative methods. Subproject 1 will study collective phronesis from the point of view of existential philosophy and examine in what way a professional judgement or action could be understood as an expression of collectivity. Study 2 takes departure in the phenomenological tradition and ask for different experiences of collectivity. Project 3 is a PhD project that will examine the actual appearances of collective phronesis from within one of the professional fields. The project's contribution to the research is twofold: On the one hand, it will map and conceptualize concrete practical problems in several professional fields and develop methods for doing this. These findings can then be used both in an educational context and research contexts. On the other hand, the project will make a contribution to epistemology and professional research in general.

Abstract [en]

As a discipline, practical knowledge is relatively new. Over recent years it has emerged and grown, but there are still only in two places internationally where you can explicitly study it (Nord University in Norway and Södertörn University in Sweden). On the other hand, the main questions of practical knowledge, as they relate to knowledge, are age old philosophical questions, while other questions dealt with implicate other disciplines (cognitive science, pedagogy, work-life research, etc.). As such, practical knowledge is interdisciplinary and should perhaps be considered a set of questions rather than a discipline. But if it can be considered a discipline, then it needs a principle of unity. Perhaps this is the lived exercise of practice and joint philosophical reflection. In the proposed chapter, this is fleshed out in terms of consideration of (a) who the students and researchers of practical knowledge are – what is it that motivates them to study (participant and field plurality)? (b) what are the key resources of practical knowledge that can allow us to ask these questions (disciplinary plurality) and how is practical knowledge related to philosophy as a discipline? (c) what are the spaces of the study of practical knowledge, what happens here and what is the potential for development? Based on this analysis, we will develop a core idea of practical knowledge as a unity that is based on plurality and put in in a framework of a contemporary debate on the relation between science and lived experience as well as philosophy and practice.

Abstract [sv]

Den här boken handlar om nybörjarpolisens första trevande steg ut i yrkeslivet, nämligen tjänstgöringen som polisaspirant. Genom elva aspiranters egna berättelser om och reflektioner över händelser ur aspiranttjänstgöringen framträder en rik bild av polisyrkets olika sidor: utsattheten, otillräckligheten, våldet och den kollegiala sammanhållningen. Boken innehåller även fyra texter av forskare som undersöker frågor som gråzonsproblematik, polishumor, kåranda och polisutbildningens utmaningar.

Abstract [en]

This chapter considers professional practice as a potentially collaborative form of practical wisdom, phronesis. The question to be explored is to what extent “collective phronesis” transcends the individual with a focus on the professions of teaching and policing as examples. Professional identity can be seen as an embodiment that involves both the individual and the social. Practitioners “embody” their profession individually and collectively. How can this be understood? As individuals, professionals often make decisions that use the routines and informal rules provided by the profession, and sometimes groups of professionals may make decisions together. There can be conflicts between these settings that challenge the embodied being-in-the-world of practitioners and their capacity to relate to other subjects in an empathetic way. Examples of such challenges will be explored to critically analyse our understanding of phronesis for the individual and the collective.

Abstract [en]

This paper is a conceptual investigation of whether, and how, action containing judgement can be understood as collective. Using an empirical example from the police profession, the article tries to capture the complexity of a real situation that requires both agency and judgement. The example is analysed in relation to the idea of collective judgement, both regarding ongoing debates in phenomenology concerning the possibility/need for a we-subject, and in social epistemology concerning the idea of judgement based on social evidence. The article claims that a richer account of action is needed in order to describe the collective aspects of judgements. Drawing on an Aristotelian understanding of action, the paper argues that an understanding of certain collective actions requires a notion of judgement that involves both we-subjectivity, and social evidence.
