Abstract

Somewhat lesser known internationally than his elder brother Gustaf, Johan Henrik Åkerman was, however, much better known inside Sweden. He was a prolific contributor to the theoretical, methodological, epistemological and policy debates in Sweden for almost 50 years. He challenged almost single-handedly (at least inside Sweden) the methodological position of the so-called Stockholm School and made valiant (but unsuccessful) attempts to provide an alternative vision which he described as the ‘Lund School’ method.
