We spent some time with this in sociology. I do not believe it's controversial to point out that Swedish social sciences in particular have a strong relation to the workers movement, especially in the 70-ies/80-ies and nowadays primarily attracts their children. Anti-study culture among boys, ideas about "male sciences" among radical feminism and theories such as the school being an indoctrination facility ruled by the upper classes all seems to stem from these ideas. Postmodernism have begun to lose it's standing though, which is good because the groups that most frequently use such rhetoric are the ones who wish to sell something that lacks a scientific foundation.
