Abstract [en]

This essay investigates if the Hunger Games can be used as an instrument for ethical discussions while teaching Swedish. To find out if the Hunger Games is appropriate an analysis will be performed using Martha Nussbaum and Aristotle´s theories about how we all strive to live a better life as well as Wayne Booths theories on ethical thinking. The studie is limited to Katniss moral character and an investigation around what kind of society that is portrayed.

The analysis found that Katniss moral character is complex and that she undergoes a development towards a better moral character. But she still has a way to go on her journey for a better life. The society leaves a lot to wish for when it concerns morality and it doesn´t fit Aristotle and Nussbaum´s theories about the state´s role in the community.

The conclusion is that the Hunger Games works well as a start for discussions about ethics and morality both in individuals and in the society. Since the characters show both good and bad characteristics it opens upp many different discussions. Even if the society is nothing but negative it is possible to compare to today’s society that have many similar features.
