General introduction

“Love is inexplicable”, according to the great Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. It is impossible, he believed, to convey through words what love actually is. Not that it matters very much though, he continues reassuringly, since a moment’s thought shows that the problem more or less resolves itself. For on reflection, there are really only two kinds of people: those who have experienced love and those who have not – or at least, not yet! The first group of people do not need an explanation because they already know what love is, while the others will never understand the phenomenon of love, no matter how often you try to explain… so why waste time trying?"

Nevertheless, we will try to ignore Søren Kierkegaard’s advice and simply try to explain it for you

The same problem can be said about describing  Rønshoved Folk High School. Basically, it is impossible to explain what a Folk High School is. A very rough definition would be that it is a type of school for people over the age of 18 that places emphasis on a general, mind-broadening education. But this fails to convey the true reality behind the words. To understand the Danish Folk High School properly, explanation is not enough – it is something that has to be experienced.
