    Tuppens och Förmiddagens filosofer: Thoreau och Nietzsche och uppvaknandets filosofi2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    This paper is about the philosophies created by Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) and Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900). The purpose is to show the high degree of similarities between Thoreau’s and Nietzsche’s philosphy.

    At first glance, it seems far-fetched to suggest an affinity between them; the differences in style and choice of subjects, have most certainly contributed to the fact that very few comparisons so far have been made. There is no evidence that one experienced any influence over the other, neither writer seems to have been aware of the other. Also their different areas of use during the 20th century, may have influenced the almost total lack of search for affinity. Thoreau’s philosphy has often been used by environmentalist movements, while Nietzsche has been connected to a wide range of various strivings, such as totalitarian regimes, individualistic artists and post-modern thinkers.

    But if one disregard these facts, look beyond the differences, and break down their texts in search for their most fundamental opinions, one will see that Nietzsche and Thoreau shared a number of concerns. They were both ciritical to many aspects of the modern civilisation, espacially the way of life it encouraged. It was a life style, deep rooted in an obstructive tradition, that did not take the very essential conditions of life into consideration. This was both Thoreau’s and Nietzsche’s opinion, and their philosophies represent a willingness to re-establish a way of life that ignores all traditions hostile to life.

    Both of them criticize the religion and its moral of work, the modern science, and many institutions of the modern society – the schools and the prisons for example. But they also praise things, things they claim to have a value in contrast to the modern way of life – the simple things. Both Thoreau and Nietzsche praise the solitude life style, the silent walking in the wilderness, the simple but healthy food, as well as some intellectual stimulus, especially good litterature and music. All these simple things contribute to Thoreau’s and Nietzsche’s opinion of life; it should be looked upon with the eyes of a child. Life should be like a play.

    The title of this paper is Philosphers of the Rooster and the Morning. The title suggests the similarities I have found between Thoreau’s and Nietzsche’s philosophies. They both announce an awakening. For them, a new morning has broken, and this paper shows the similar circumstances they give credit for their awakening.

    ”Frihetsdräkten” eller Konsten att klä sig fri:   - en undersökning av den kvinnliga klädedräktens förändringsmöjligheter via artiklar i dagstidningar och tidskrifter från åren 1896 och 1897.2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis

    Abstract

     

    The purpose of this paper is to put the question of the change of the female dress in relation to the predominant view of the women by the end of the 19th century. The paper analyses the fixing of the boundaries for possible forms of expression within the range of female gender identity from aspects such as aesthetics, freedom and health. Through a close reading of articles published in 1896 and 1897 in Swedish daily papers and magazines, with focus on the lectures held in Sweden by the Norwegian dress-reformer Kristine Dahl and the meetings arranged by Svenska Dräktreformföreningen regarding a shorter length of the skirt, this paper investigates the issues and divergence that arose when changing the female dress. The paper runs the hypothesis that the issues and divergence that arose have something to say about where the boundaries were fixed concerning how far the meaning of the female gender identity could be expanded. The analysis uses the theory about the performativity of gender by Judith Butler. The theory gives the opportunity to investigate the fixing of the boundaries regarding how gender should be expressed to achieve comprehensibility: how far can you go when challenging contemporary norms of gender expression and how can you explain the difficulties that arise when you try to expand the meaning of the female gender identity?

     

    To some extent the analysis confirms the starting point of this paper: the difficulties that arose may have something to do with the extension of the female gender identity. For example there was evidence that the question of desire in Butler´s theory was playing a part when interpreting the reform ideas as being ambiguous in its gender expression. Prevailing ideals of fashion along with the ideal female silhouette also turned out to be an obstructing factor.

     

    This investigation has found a rather benevolent attitude in the articles towards the change of the outer dress and the proposal concerning a shorter length of the skirt. This separates this study from what has generally been found in other countries when dress reformers tried to change the outer dress. Changing the outer dress in England and the US drew upon a harsh resistance and strong reactions in the public opinion and the daily papers.

    Definitionsproblem i sexualbrottslagen: -bristen i definieringen av begreppet vuxen2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The ideas of adulthood, adolescence and childhood in Swedish law have a tendency to not be expressed or discussed. This thesis has focused on the preparatory work of the sexual offence-law to see whether it defines adulthood. This has been achieved by analyzing the documents related to this preparatory work. The thesis focused on two central questions: 1) Was the idea of adulthood an integral part of the discussions in the preparatory work 2) If so, then how was it defined and are there any contradictions in the definition. In addition, this work also evaluated the impact of this law and investigated whether the absolute protection intended by the government and the committee of sexual crime seek actually exists.

    The study shows that the concept of adulthood was not defined specifically in the preparatory work. However, through the attempts of defining childhood, an inference of adulthood can be made indirectly. The different documents could not create a tenable definition which resulted in this process confusing rather than clarifying the definitions. These ambiguous definitions affect not only the victim of a sexual crime, but also the perpetrator and the judges’ interpretation of the law. The absolute protection also does not exist and instead of making the law stronger and firmer, the revision of the law made it weaker and reduced the judicial security.

    Abstract [en]

    At the turn of the century 18/1900 Swedish law looked upon young people as being adults at about the age of 15. At 15, the young person had left school, had his first employment and provided for himself and also had been confirmed to full membership of the Swedish State Church. Thus he was to be considered an adult and responsible for his actions. Parents, society/school and Church had done what was expected of them and now it was up to the 15-years old to live according to the laws and to be punished if the laws were broken. Over the following hundred years, at the time of the millennium, Swedish society changed a lot. So the laws did not and still a young person of 15 is considered an adult in the eye of the Swedish law. This paper looks upon the ideas that the law was based on at the turn of the century 18/1900 and the ideas that are put forward by Swedish courts today. The law has not changed, but today Swedish young people leave school between the ages of 19-25, and find their first employment even later. The paper gives the historical background and looks at the underlying ideas of adulthood. How people think and what is considered being important in defining aduldthood has not changed much over those hundred years. In deciding if a person could pass as an adult, the Swedish law still use the same premisses today as it did a hundred years ago. As these premissies and ideas are the same, though society has changed, you can’t today be considered an adult until in your twenties.

    Uppfostrad av samhället: – En studie av 6 grundskoleläroplaner från 1900-talet2006Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Democracy has been a part of the Swedish society for a long period of time and it is also a part of the Swedish elementary school curriculum, in which you can find a number of statements that expresses that the Swedish elementary school should socialize the children into becoming role model citizens. This also conjures with the available research that describes schools in general as socializing. This led me to a question that hasn’t been answered: How much of the curriculums reasons for socialization the pupils are based on democratic values and how much of it can be dated back to events prior to the curriculum?

    The methodological approach is an analysis of ideologies as described by Sven-Eric Liedman and Ingemar Nilsson in Ideologi och ideologianalys. The text is focusing on the fact that a text has two layers; one is the manifest which is roughly the same as explicit or present in the text. The other layer is the latent, which is a part of the texts meaning that is indeed present but it doesn’t show until you analyse the text in the company of a valid context, in my case the context is going to a text about political socialization and a brief review of curriculums different contexts. The essay, then, is consisting of 6 different cases consisting of a brief context and an analysis of a curriculum. The chosen curriculums are from 1919, 1955, 1962, 1969, 1980 and 1994.

    The study showed that a part of the curriculums reasons for socializing the pupils are based on democratic values which can be found in every curriculum that I’ve studied. The study also showed that the curriculums that I’ve studied are also partly consisting of opinions that can be dated back to events that occurred years prior to the curriculum.

    Aristoteles och cyberspace: Kunskaper, färdigheter och insikter i hypertextens föränderliga värld2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to deepen the understanding of our contemporary description of digital literacy using the perspective on knowledge from the Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle. I have chosen to deal with the problem using a hermeneutic approach. The method of inquiry is based on close reading of the selected literature. The selection itself has been made after a strategic selection regarding perspective on knowledge and digital literacy. It appears in the thesis that there are substantial differences but also similarities between our contemporary description of digital literacy from Recommendation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 on key competences for lifelong learning and the perspective on knowledge from the Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle.Still, the result has been possible to use for the purpose of the thesis since the problem has an answer and a deepened impression of the understandings of digital literacy.

    Möjliga av världar  idén om kvinnan i två kvinnors feministiska utopier: en idéhistorisk studie av Christine de Pizans The City of the Ladies och Charlotte Perkins Gilmans Herland2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis highlights starting points underlying the notions of two feminist utopians, Christine de Pizan and Charlotte Perkins Gilman. In approaching their texts, it focuses on the notions central to understand their writings. These would be historical, social, and cultural contexts. Defining concepts as utopian in its varying forms and feminism has been of significance. A feministic approach grounded in Simone de Beauvoirs philosophical phenomenology in the study of feministic utopia's visibility, has contributed to the understanding of the power structures to which women are tethered. In order to understand the way women are presented, it has become obvious that The Book of the City of Ladies and Herland are literary works that are related not only by their authors’ background and personality but by the society in which they lived. Through their engagement in the contemporary intellectual debate on all social planes, both authors contributed to shifting the focus of their own contemporary notions of a woman to the notion of a woman equal to men. Woman, in Christine de Pizans utopia, is given specific properties and through themes of issues given meaning. She is not free in the sense that Simone de Beauvoir says.  She has a broader repertoire than was historically assigned, but her freedom is not arbitrary, contingent, and temporary and judged by her actions. Charlotte Perkins Gilman's woman is in her novel subordinated by biology in contrast to her real society where she is a result of economic and social oppression in history and society. By being united, women can drive social change and thereby change their living conditions. In Herland, the author shows what this superior human togetherness can lead to in a socialist society. By focusing on issues related to motherhood, community and work, she challenges the reader to question the universal starting point for their understanding of masculinity and femininity

    Critique of Cosmopolitan Reason: Timing and Spacing the Concept of World Citizenship2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the Enlightenment, the definition of terms such as humanity, citizenship and rights has fluctuated and these ideas continue to haverelevance for contemporary discussions of globalization from a «cosmopolitan» perspective. This volume goes back to the conception ofcosmopolitanism in Greek antiquity in order to trace it through history, resulting in an unmasking of its many myths. The concept is reconstructedwith reference not only to well-known (and some lesser known) historical thinkers of cosmopolitanism, but also to noted «anti-cosmopolitans».The first aim of the book is to display historical perspectives on a discourse which has been dominated by ahistorical presumptions. Thesecond is to critically explore alternative paths beyond the Western imagination, redefining the Enlightenment legacy and the centre-peripherydichotomy. Most notably, Eastern Europe and the Arab world are integrated within the analysis of cosmopolitanism. Within a framework ofconceptual history (Begriffsgeschichte), cosmopolitan reason is criticized from the viewpoints of comparative literature, psychoanalysis,phenomenology, postcolonialism and moral philosophy.The book’s critical approach is an attempt to come to terms with the anachronism, essentialism, ethnocentrism and anthropocentrism thatsometimes underlie contemporary theoretical and methodological uses of the term «cosmopolitanism». By adding historical and contextualdepth to the problem of cosmopolitanism, a reflexive corrective is presented to enhance ongoing discussions of this topic within as well asoutside academia.

    A European Home for Russia?: The Late Soviet Conceptualization of Globalization2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim is to reconstruct Gorbachev’s concept of a European home, and its underlying philosophy of history. The concept is contextualised within the convergence debate of the post war-period, in which a rapprochement between communism and capitalism was posited. The concept indicated a paradigmatic departure from the traditional ‘anti-imperialist’ Soviet outlook, towards a search for ‘universal consensus,’ where so-called ‘human’ values were placed above the international class struggle. The idea about a bipolar world was redefined from the viewpoint of recognizing global interdependence. But how could Russia fit into a new European, global or even cosmic order? The concept of a European home will be discussed in relation to the early 20th century movement of Russian cosmism. The paper concludes with reflections on what the conceptualisation can tell us about the fall of communism and what impact the concept has had on today’s search for a common European identity, as well as implications for our contemporary understanding of questions about global integration and systemic crises. An argument is advanced that the notion contained paradoxes and anachronisms that rather contributed to the dislocation of post-Soviet Russia from Europe.

    Att förutsäga framtiden – och förlösa den: En undersökning av den postkommunistiska transitologins idéhistoria och tidsuppfattning2015In: Nordisk Østforum, ISSN 0801-7220, E-ISSN 1891-1773, Vol. 29, no 4, 387-417 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the roots and premises of post-communist transitology which became prominent during the 1990s are critically contextualized from the point of view of intellectual history. Attention is paid not only to the development of the concept oftime, but also of history, development, evolution, progress, revolution and acceleration.The notion of regime change is reconstructed and traced through the politicalphilosophy of Greek antiquity, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, as well as in scientific thought and debate of the 19th century, in the modernization theories of the1950s, and in the "transitology" of the 1970s and 1980s dealing with Southern Europe and Latin America. The analysis takes its point of departure in a comparison between post-communist transitology and Cold War Sovietology and critically assesses implications of teleology, chronocentrism and ethnocentrism.

    Abstract [sv]

    Våren 2017 drabbades Sverige av sin första fullbordade terrorattack med islamistiska förtecken. Mitt i känslan av chock och sorg berördes vi starkt av de gränsöverskridande manifestationerna av värme och gemenskap. Men en nygammal berättelse, understödd av vad en del kommentatorer gärna vill se som en ”postsekulär” utveckling, en Guds återkomst, lade sig samtidigt som ett kvalmigt täcke över det offentliga samtalet, nämligen den om godhet kontra ondska. Men det är inte ”ondskan” som är problemet. Vad som behövs är inte mer godhet, utan självinsikt. Det som terrorismen ytterst attackerar är det sekulära och öppna samhället, det samhälle som i modern tid varit överlägset bäst på att främja tolerans för olikheter och skydda individens fri- och rättigheter, inklusive religionsfriheten. När vi delar in världen i gott och ont går vi i en annan riktning och skapar en spegelvänd bekräftelse av inget mindre än terroristens egen världsbild.

    Abstract [en]

    The fall of the Soviet Union is analysed in conceptual terms, drawing on Reinhart Koselleck’s Begriffsgeschichte. The author seeks to interpret the instrumental role of the concepts perestrojka, glasnost´, reform, revolution, socialist pluralism, and acceleration in the Soviet collapse. The semantics and pragmatics are related to a wider intellectual and political context, and the conceptual perspective is used to help explain the progress of events. The author argues that the common notion of the reform policy concepts as clichés is not valid.

    Syftet är att skapa ett idéhistoriskt och holistiskt perspektiv på förutsättningar för befolkningsinriktad suicidprevention. Suicid härbärgerar en ofrånkomlig kulturell och existentiell ambivalens som skapar problem men också möjligheter. Den prevention som förordas är tvärsektoriell för att bemöta suicidalitetens mångfaktorialitet.

    East of Cosmopolis: Cosmopolitanism and Russocentrism in Gorbachev's Common European Home2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    “Kosmopolitizm” has been used in Russia as a word of abuse for 150 years. Paradoxically, the Russian official self-concept has frequently been defined in universalistic or post-national terms. I will here try to discuss Gorbachev’s vision of a common European home in light of the discourse of an ideal-typical cosmopolitanism with origins in the Enlightenment. What happens when a prevalent imperialistic universalism—with particularistic content—is challenged from a point of view of a more cosmopolitan universalism? Gorbachev’s policy, as well as the fall of the Soviet Union, is reconstructed conceptually in a diachronic context of previous Russian and Soviet responses to Western influences. By analysing the cosmopolitan, as well as russocentric, implications of Gorbachev’s efforts to link Soviet and Russian culture to a European and Western community, we might develop reflexive perspectives on general problems and contradictions of current globalization and integration.

    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet i denna uppsats är att begreppshistoriskt rekonstruera det moderna självmordsbegreppet och visa hur dess teori och praktik samspelar. Vad kan en begreppshistorisk analys säga oss om vad som driver människor till självmord och hur har handlingen och dess konception återverkat på varandra över tid?

    "From Blood-Stained Colonial Sugar to Life-Essential Blood Sugar: Swedish-European Themes in the Global Cultural History of Sugar"

    Drawing on material cultural studies and classical intellectual history, a cultural history of sugar in Sweden and Europe is reconstructed. The aim is to identify the modern conceptualisations of sugar and historically analyse their dialectical sympathies and antipathies. What are the historical reasons for eating—or not eating—sugar, and how are these actualised today? Sugar’s history is followed from antiquity, the middle ages and the Enlightenment up till the present. Sugar was spread in wider European circles only from the 1600s onwards, which triggered various conflicts that in many respects are still current. Was sugar a medicine or a poison, essential or fatal? Sugar played a powerful role in the creation of European wealth and has become intrinsically connected to Western modernity. With a contrastive departure in Mintz (1986) it is shown how the conceptualisations of sugar have changed from signifying an exclusive medicine, spice and sweetener to an omnipresent food (more recently, it might also be referred to as a drug). Cookbooks indicate that sugar in Sweden was transformed into a mass-consumed food during the 1830s. One hundred years later sugar was among Swedish bureaucrats elevated into the utmost important foodstuff of the future, to which the country had committed itself. Increasing the prevalence and consumption of cheap, energy-rich and chemically pure sugar was considered modern, rational and ethical. By eating sugar a Swede could literally eat happiness, freedom and modernity. Even critics of sugar consumption have since the 18th century associated modernity with sugar. Sugar crystals embodied civilization’s inequality and degeneration. When scientists in the 1840s enthusiastically discovered that sugar in humans was transformed into ‘blood sugar’, a poetical motive from 1700s slavery criticism was ironically recycled, in which ‘sugar’ had been attributed with ‘blood’ in order to discourage people’s consumption. The medical identification of sugar (sucrose) and blood sugar (glucose) meant that sucrose increasingly was regarded as essential, which gradually helped to consolidate the prevailing idea of ​​carbohydrates as the primary energy source. Although preference for sweetness is genetic, cultural circumstances determine the forms and scope of sugar consumption. If sugar previously was a status marker of the aristocracy, it has accompanied by new medical discoveries increasingly become emblematic for the junk food of the underprivileged. Sugar’s white colour, purity, status of ‘blood sugar’, ethereal lightness and historic significance for national growth and autarky, are, however, examples of cultural factors which still legitimise sugar’s omnipresence in society. In today’s polarised debate about possible threshold values or penalty taxes, many opinions ventilated even in commercial, medical and public health discourses implicitly relate to older religious and cultural ideas and practices.

    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet i denna essä är att förmedla och teoretisera erfarenheter av en fakultetsöverskridande introduktionskurs som riktade sig till särskilt studieovana studenter 2004–2006, samt kritiskt reflektera över olika möjliga sätt att bemöta studenter med bristande formella förkunskaper. Hur kunde studenterna på kursen ifråga ha aktiverats och initierats mer i undervisningen? Kurserfarenheten tolkas i ljuset av olika pedagogiska teorier. Överraskande var att studenterna tycktes röra sig i motsatt riktning jämfört med William Perrys kategorier för kunskapsutveckling, med ett förstärkande av instrumentella och”dualistiska” attityder. Som alternativ föreslås att didaktiken görs mindre överföringsinriktad och mer återkopplande, men utan avkall på att lärande förutsätter motstånd. Skilda förutsättningar råder emellertid på olika nivåer. Inför studieovana studenter tjänar pedagoger på att lägga undan sin forskarattityd. För att undvika kontraproduktiva effekter rymmer den föreslagna didaktiken en dialektik mellan ackommodation och assimilation inom ramen för ett närmande mellan lärarens och studenternas förståelsehorisonter. Kursplanen bör således kontinuerligt omförhandlas i takt med dess implementering.

    Abstract [sv]

    Glasnost´och perestrojka är två av de senaste decenniernas viktigaste begrepp. I sin lexikaliska denotation är glasnost´ en ekvivalent till tyskans eller svenskans offentlighetsbegrepp. Men under ytan kommer diametralt motsatta semantiska, etymologiska, fenomenologiska, ontologiska och metafysiska förutsättningar till uttryck. I relation till svenska och västeuropeiska förhållanden fokuseras här det ryska glasnost´-begreppets metamorfoser och återverkningar på det historiska skeendet fram till Sovjetunionens fall. Vilka möjligheter och svårigheter impliceras när man försöker tala om den ryska och sovjetiska erfarenheten i termer av (västerländsk) modernitet? Vad för slags kunskap kan egentligen utvinnas ur en rysk (eller allmänt östeuropeisk) kontext med hjälp av en begreppshistorisk metod, som utarbetats i en företrädesvis västeuropeisk miljö?
