2. Forests And Finnish Culture: There Behind Yonder Woodland...

Written for Virtual Finland by Aarne Reunala, Director
Finnish Forest Research Institute, Helsinki Research Centre
Lake Pielinen and Koli. Photo: Hannu Vallas N urtured in a Western cultural tradition, Johan Vilhelm Snellman (1806-1881), the progenitor of the Finnish language, culture and currency, was of the opinion that the forests of Finland should be felled and the money used to develop agriculture. As far as he was concerned, this was the only way for the Finns to gain inclusion among the civilised nations and to rid themselves of the stigmas of barbarism, lack of civilisation and drunkenness. S nellman wanted to see Finland follow in the footsteps of the other European countries, which had developed their culture against an agricultural background, but cultural history did not repeat itself in the case of Finland. Snellman failed to comprehend the might of industrialisation. T he sawmills and pulp and paper mills had the effect of multiplying C ulture and education have not, however, done away with the "backwoods heritage" so abhorred by Snellman. Examples of this are to be seen in the novel "

Finnish Culture: National Romanticism
As human being needs to be rooted on mother Earth, so must a nation be builded on its roots so that it can survive when the storm comes. Finnish independence is very young, although our nation escaped the fate of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia. These pages are a way to express gratitude to some of those individuals who fought for the liberty of Finland in their own peaceful way.

Uralic People
    Welcome to Uralic Family Home Page. The Uralic Family of languages is comprised of two branches: 1) Finno-Ugric, and 2) Samoyedic. The Finnish/Karelian and Estonian (Finnic), and Hungarian (Ugric) people belong to this distinct group of linguistically and culturally related northern people. There are also more related groups in the former Soviet Union, most of which are quickly being assimilated into the dominant Russian language and culture. Finnish culture, which is the main focus, is very Scandinavian in style, but Finno-Ugric origins make the people distinct in many ways. Who are the Uralic people? Where did they come from? Where do they live? What is their language and culture like? This web page explores these and many other questions relating to Uralic people: their past, present and future. Pictures and maps are used extensively to illustrate.

Kalevala - The Finnish National Epic
Finnish culture at the beginning of the 1800s Written for Virtual Finland by Anneli Asplund,
The Kalevala Society, the Finnish Literature Society The status of the Finnish language left much to be desired during the period of Swedish rule (-1809). The language used in schools and universities was either Swedish or Latin, and the language of state administration was Swedish. Only the ordinary peasants in the countryside spoke Finnish, and the only publications to appear in Finnish were some legal texts and religious literature. By the end of the 1700s, however, there was already a small group of students at Turku University who were familiar with the ideology of National Romanticism. These students realized that the language of the common people, as well as folklore collection and publication, were crucial to the development of a uniquely Finnish culture.

    A dip into Finnish culture
    Hanna Nevalainen
In the midst of the July heat, when the whole of Finland seems to be on holiday, there are some who keep toiling away. In Helsinki these include young foreigners who have chosen to spend their summer holidays delving into the perplexities of Finnish grammar and Finnish culture.
The course takes three weeks, and the seat of learning is the University of Helsinki, a place echoing emptiness in July. The days are spent in intensive study. In the morning, the students sit in class, in the afternoon attend lectures, and in the evening do their homework. Weekends are dedicated to excursions. The whole course is topped off with a fairly extensive project written in Finnish, which the students present in class. This advanced course in Helsinki is one of the many summer courses in Finnish language and culture organised by the Centre for International Mobility CIMO and Finnish universities. This year there are altogether 250 students attending courses arranged all over Finland. These courses in Finnish culture and language have been on offer since 1963. They are intended for students living permanently outside Finland, mainly those studying Finnish or linguistics. Hungarian

Finnish Culture
The roots of Finnish culture are in the life of those early Finns who lived in prehistoric times, reflected in the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala, collected by Elias Lönnrot from oral tradition at the beginning of the 19th century. Also the influence of Sweden and the Catholic Church on western Finland as well as that of the Orthodox Church in the east are visible. The Finnish association with nature goes back to pre-Christian times when earth spirits were worshipped. Then came Christianity and after the Reformation in 1520's the Saints disappeared from the calendars but many old legends and myths still have their place in folk customs. Traditional folklore and art survived as late as early twentieth century. The first Finnish ABC-book was published in 1543 by Mikael Agricola (1510-1557). The Bible came out in Finnish in 1640. National romanticism also flourished in Swedish by such Finnish authors as Runeberg and Topelius. Finnish novel was born when Aleksis Kivi (1834-1872) published his "The Cobblers of the Heath" in 1864 and his "Seven Brothers" came out in 1870. The turn of the century introduced Minna Canth with her plays. F.E. Sillanpää won the Nobel Prize in 1939 with his novels of Finnish rural life. One of the most popular Finnish authors is Mika Waltari (1908-1979) with his "The Egyptian" which was also filmed in Hollywood and has been translated to 25 languages. Also particularly successful has been the children's author Tove Jansson with her Muumin- books.

  • References Abstract: In-depth interviews were used to explore the "Finnishness" and "Europeanness" of two generations of Finnish intellectuals and a comparison group of higher civil servants. Respondents (20 from each group) were asked to describe along ten dimensions of values and life-style: (1) their national stereotypes of Finns and Finland and (2) their own trans-cultural self-identifications, in comparison with other peoples and cultures. Many traits were considered "genuinely Finnish", yet an overall pattern of "Finnishness" with German working morale, "Nordic" official behavior, "Byzantine" politics and Western European lifestyle and arts emerged. Older intellectuals emphasized the Eastern (Russian) traits of Finnish values and life-style, while younger intellectuals were more oriented to American and general cosmopolitan ways of life. Keywords: intellectuals, values and life-styles, national stereotypes, transcultural self identification

There are plenty of things that make Finnish culture so special, rare and unique. That's why it's a great pity that most of the foreign people, in particular folks from far away like citizens of the USA or Japan, know practically nothing about us. They have maybe heard of World War II and that tiny country that fought as allies of evil Germany or they guess that we're almost Russian people somewhere near Europe. Many of them can at least locate our country afar north. Why our culture is the only one of its kind then? To begin with the colourful history of Finland, both in bad and in good, which is so eventful although not till the latest centuries. We have been under domination of two great powers: Sweden and Russian without our own will but still managed to maintain our own identity and nationality throughout all periods of oppression. Our ancestors fought for independence of Finland and succeeded because of the very strong community spirit even after civil war. That's why Finland became independent in 1917.
