    Animal and Human Subjectivity in Cixous' Algerian narratives2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the place of the human and the animal in Hélène Cixous' work. It takes the figure of Fips, the dog of the Cixous family that she writes about in her autobiographical narratives, as a starting point. By thinking through this figure, I argue, Cixous analyses the dehumanizing logic of colonialism and anti-Semitism in Algeria and develops her own response to it, arguing for human relationality and animal corporeality. The paper shows that Cixous’ primal encounter with Fips produces a stigma that, belatedly, ruptures the barrier between herself and this specific dog; its dehiscence reveals a profound animal humanity generated by suffering, finitude, and compassion. The lesson Cixous learns from the memory of the Dog is how to become ‘more human’. This becoming is also an assault on the false humanism of the colonial project, on the closed gates as markers of colonial dehumanization and racialized social exclusion.

    Assault on the Borders: Hélène Cixous on Animals and the Human2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the continual displacement of nearly every established conception of the human, the figure of the human remains a powerful idea for political and ethical theorizing. In the era of human rights, the language of dehumanization has become a dominant frame for accounting for and criticizing a wide range of abuses and social harms. Likewise, the human has come to mark a status that promises protection from the dehumanizing effects of violence, discrimination and other modes of injustice. Cixous’ recent work on the concept have contributed to this discussion by providing an analysis of the borders between what we call human and inhuman and by pointing to the precarious conditions of hospitality towards other beings (human and nonhuman). This paper examines the place of the human and animals in Cixous’ work. It takes the figure of Fips, the dog of the Cixous family in Algiers, as a starting point. By thinking through this figure, Cixous analyses the dehumanizing logic of colonialism and anti-Semitism in Algeria and develops her own response to it, arguing for human relationality and animal corporeality. The paper shows that Cixous’ relationship with Fips produces a stigma that, belatedly, disrupt the barrier between herself and this specific dog. The lesson Cixous learns from revivifying the memory of the Dog is how to become ‘more human’. This becoming is also an assault on the false humanism of the colonial project, on the closed Gates as markers of colonial dehumanization and racialized social exclusion. The lesson of hospitality Cixous learns by another primal event: the resurrection of Fips in the form of another animal – the unexpected arrival of a cat (Thea) that puts conditional hospitality into question simply by demanding (and giving) an unconditional hospitality.

    Franz Kafka’s and Hannah Arendt’s perceptions of membership in a human community2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the complex, paradoxical and tortuous relationship between human, nonhuman and inhuman in the fiction of Franz Kafka and the philosophy of Hannah Arendt in connection with the issues of the ethical importance of being human and the political processes that produces the ideological concept of “the human.” Whereas Arendt, as a philosopher, is especially concerned with the legal or quasi-legal norms that should entitle every subject, even a stateless refugee, to appear as a member in a political community, Kafka, as a literary writer, analyzes the social norms of “imagination” that determine whether a human being appears to fellow human beings as a member of the human community at all.

    'My little wild fever-struck brother': Human and animal subjectivity in Hélène Cixous' Algeria2017In: International Journal of Philosophy and Theology, ISSN 2169-2327, E-ISSN 2169-2335, Vol. 78, no 4-5, p. 456-468Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the place of human and animal subjectivityin two autobiographically informed texts by Hélène Cixous. It takesher view on the word ‘human’ and the figure of Fips, the dog ofthe Cixous family, as a point of departure. By thinking through thisfigure, I argue, Cixous analyses the dehumanizing logic of colonialismand anti-Semitism in Algeria and develops her own responseto such kinds of political evils, arguing for human relationality andanimal corporeality. The article shows that Cixous’ meeting withFips creates a stigma that, belatedly, breaks through the barrierbetween herself and the dog; the reopening of the wound takesplace in a poetical writing that reveals an intense ‘animal humanity’formed by communal suffering, finiteness, and love. The lessonCixous learns from the memory of Fips the dog is how to become‘better human’. This becoming is also an assault on the falsehumanism of the colonial project and on racialized social exlusion.

    Refugees, rights and writing: An Arendtian Perspective2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ours is a time of global institutional change. It would perhaps be premature to refer to this situation as a condition of statelessness, but there is a sense in which the modern state has lost its privileged position in the exercise of democratic politics. Partly through its own act of outsourcing and outlawing, partly through pressure from global actors and economic structures, it has assisted in creating a growing call of ‘precarious’ people around the world: migrants, refugees, stateless persons. The number of people without rights or work in Europe is growing. In political life, this group is the subject of increasingly hostile discourse on ‘illegal immigrants’ and ‘international terrorism’. This paper explores how a rereading of the work Hannah Arendt can contribute to the analytical and political task of giving an alternative meaning to the presence of this group in our societies. She shows us the stateless person as a victim subjected to a very specific form of domination; as an emblematic figure whose status exposes the contradiction of state-centered citizenship and the discourse of human rights; and as an important political actor whose protests can become visible sites of active citizenship.

    Abstract [en]

    Hélène Cixous’ engagement with animals is a significant but neglected aspect of her work. In this article I trace one specific character among her animals, Fips, a dog she had when she was living in Algiers during the late 1940s. By reflecting on this figure, I outline the way the dehumanising logic of colonialism and anti-Semitism are critiqued by Cixous. I lift up her themes of relationality and corporeality as constructive for animal studies. Taking the work of Jacques Derrida as a starting point, the article shows how Cixous’ primal encounter with Fips produces a wound that, belatedly, ruptures the barriers between herself and this dog; its dehiscence reveals Fips’ ‘profound animal humanity’ generated by shared suffering, finitude, and love. The lesson Cixous learns from revivifying the memory of this dog is, I suggest, how to become more human. The ‘humanity’ of the dog is the capacity to see and indeed love outside preconceived ideas: ‘Perhaps the irony is that we are never more human than when we are dogs.’ Becoming more human is an assault on the borders of racialised exclusion and a challenge to the false humanism of the colonial project.

    Religiös slakt- En mänsklig rättighet?: Ett studium om det är etiskt försvarbart med kosher- och halalslakt utifrån Martha C Nussbaums förståelse för djurens rättigheter och människans rätt att utöva religion.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats handlar om religiös slakt och hur etiskt försvarbara den judiska kosherslakten och den muslimska halalslakten är, detta utifrån ett människorättsperspektiv i jämförelse med ett djurrättsperspektiv. Uppsatsen utgår till stor del utifrån författaren Martha C Nussbaums teorier kring människors rättigheter och djurs rättigheter, där hon i båda ämnena tar upp ”the capability approach”, som handlar om vad varje människa och djur som ett minimum, för vad ett värdigt liv kräver, har rätt till. I uppsatsen finns även avsnitt om kosher- respektive halalslakt samt ett kapitel om jordbruksverkets syn på konventionell slakt och dess innebörd men också deras syn på kosher- och halalslakt

    I analysen, analyseras de olika delarna för att försöka hitta svar på min frågeställning. Analysen inleds med ett människoperspektiv utifrån, ”the capabilities approach”, där jag analyserar konsekvensen av ett förbud mot kosher- och halalslakt. Vilket enligt mig skulle vara en inskränkning mot detta minimum som Nussbaum ställer upp med ”the capabilities approach”. Efter detta kommer en analys av djurättsperspektivet där jag försöker få fram vad djurens rättigheter bör vara och hur vi ska kunna tillgodose djurens rättigheter. I slutet av analysen så försöker jag få fram en bild av hur vår relation till djuren bör se ut, samt att jag tittar på kosher- och halalslakt och försöker få fram hur humant/rättfärdigat dessa slaktmetoder är. I slutsatsen tar jag fram det väsentligaste delarna från analysen för att försöka finna svar på min frågeställning. Jag diskuterar vilket perspektiv jag anser bör gå före det andra utifrån min frågeställning för att till slut komma fram till att jag inte anser att det är etiskt försvarbart med kosher- respektive halalslakt utifrån ett människorättsperspektiv i jämförelse med ett djurrättsperspektiv.

    Att ta skriken på allvar: Etiska perspektiv på självdestruktivt beteende2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation has multiple goals. First to analyze self-destructive behavior and its relations to ethics. Secondly to evaluate four different ethical perspectives regarding self-destructiveness from a certain position of human nature. The third goal is to construct a position that deals with self-destructive behavior in a way that is improved and well-managed compared to the four ethical perspectives analyzed earlier. The first goal is met by comparing and evaluating different theories concerning self-destructive behavior and discussing the ethical implications surrounding them. Self-destructive behavior is seen as a way of communicating, which puts a moral pressure on both the self-destructive person and the society around her. The four ethical perspectives represented by Robert Nozick and Thomas Szasz, two neoliberals, James B Nelson, a body theologian inspired by Paul Tillich, Gail Weiss, a body feminist and Mary Timothy Prokes, a catholic body theologian, are hence met by the problem of self-destruct, analyzed and critically evaluated. In the final chapter the author constructs an improved ethical perspective concerned with self-destructiveness, based on altruism, responsibility and broad-mindedness.

    Assessment of farm animals and intersubjectivity2010In: Global food security: ethical and legal challenges / [ed] Carlos M. Romeo Casabona, Leire Escajedo San Epifanio & Aitziber Emaldi Cirión, Wageningen: Wageningen Academic Publishers , 2010, p. 348-353Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to outline an approach, called the textual approach, to theoretically confirm the intersubjectivity of assessments of animal welfare. The field of medical hermeneutics is used as a source for inspiration of how to correlate results of disparate empirical methods in order to better understand the health status of another being. The textual approach suggests that farm animals should be assessed as physiological objects as well as experiencing subjects. Stress-measurements add information about the animal as an object, while the adjective-based method adds information about the animal as a subject. The textual approach also implies, morally, that the assessed animal should be treated as an intrinsically valued being. The concern for intersubjectivity is thus not only based on scientific concerns, but also concerns for the animals in themselves.

    Care ethics and the moving animal: the roles of love and sympathy in encountering the animal being2011In: Animal movements - moving animals: essays on direction, velocity and agency in humanimal encounters / [ed] Jacob Bull, Uppsala: Uppsala universitet , 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The care-ethical approach to the animal issue has been developed with the notion of sympathy as a manner to acknowledge that non-human animals lead a relevantly moral existence. Josephine Donovan claims that this approach is inspired by David Hume’s emotive ethics, as well as Simone Weil’s notion of love. I argue that care-ethics may benefit from both Humean notion of moral sentiments, as well as from Weil’s thoughts on love, but that the distintion between the notions must be preserved. Sympathy acknowledges suffering. Love, though, acknowledges existence. The emotions, in relation to animals, thus acknowledge different aspects of the animal. It is logically inconsistent to claim both sympathy and attentive love as the most basic moral emotion. Attentive love is a distinct emotion with a distinct object which also suggests an ethical view where animals are existences among other kinds of existences, of which all are possible objects of love.

    Abstract [en]

    The wolf is an animal that was an endangered species in the swedish woods. But since a couple of years, the wolf has become more and more aggressive towards humans, animals of the forest and farm-animals. Some people think that its acceptable to hunt and kill the wolf, to prevent attacks on other species - while other people think that the wolf should be left alone, and that the humans must move and take their animals with them, if they can not accept the precence of the wolf among them.

    But how come some animals are more acceptable to hunt than others? Why are some lives more worth protecting than others? And how can we decide what to hunt and kill? Is it acceptable to kill someone, just because we do not think it has any feelings? Is it aceptable to kill someone or something just because it lacks a certain amount of reason? Is it thereby acceptable to test make-up on newborn babies, as we do on dogs and monkeys?

    In this essay I have tried to give answers to these questions. I have found out that an antropologic christian vision on animalhunting, will accept the hunt of the wolf – if the purpose of the hunt – human satisfaction – is fullfilled.

    A more modern christian vision will not accept the hunt of the wolf – due to the fact that all forms of life has the same value. Therefore, is it not acceptable to kill others, by any other means than self defence.

    The antropologic christian vision is more interested in the human, than in other animals. If you compare this to the more modern christian vision, they are complete opponents to each other. In the modern christian vision, you must see to the living being, and not only to the human satisfation.

    Mapping a Moral Landscape of IPCC2010In: Religion and Dangerous Environmental Change: Transdisciplinary Perspectives on the Ethics of Climate and Sustainability / [ed] Sigurd Bergmann & Dieter Gerten, Berlin, Münster, Zürich, London: LIT Verlag, 2010Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Public discourse indicates that e.g. researchers, churches, economists, lay people, climate experts, policymakers, artists and educators agree that climate change1 involves serious moral challenges to glocal communities. Still, with some exceptions moral philosophers and ethicists have not paid attention to the moral dimension of mitigation, adaptation and vulnerability. Thus, this chapter and this book are unusual voices in a slowly expanding field of crossdisciplinary climate change research in highlighting meanings of ethical aspects of climate change. The main purpose of this chapter is to identify and clarify the ethical content of current climate change discourse. This is accomplished by answering the question of what a climate change moral landscape would look like according to the Intergovernmental panel of climate change (IPCC)4 from the point of view of the capabilities approach (TCA). Thus, the results reported in this chapter stems from an ethical5 analysis of selected documents from IPCC’s fourth assessment report (AR4).6 This reading (or mapping) of IPCC is related to climate change philosophy, anthropology, theology and mobility research. Following this introduction, the second part produces a theoretical and methodological framework for the analysis and it also includes a short introduction to TCA. The third and main section presents results of the analysis. The final part includes conclusions and a discussion of the results as well as comments on and suggestions for further research.

    Reflexive Toleration: A Critical Inquiry into Rainer Forst’s Theory of Toleration2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master’s thesis provides a critical inquiry into Rainer Forst’s theory of toleration, including a descriptive section and a normative critical stance of said theory. Being placed in the tradition of critical theory, also applied as the theoretical framework, and using a hermeneutics methodology when approaching the material, the aim is to provide a close reading of Forst’s texts. The research question of the thesis is What are the possibilities and limits of Forst’s theory of toleration when applied to a democratic political community? The descriptive section of Forst's theory of toleration includes sections comprising of what constitutes the domain of toleration, the components and foundation of toleration, and toleration in relation to virtue and politics. In essence, Forst proposes a principle of justification as the foundation of toleration, mainly derived from his political theory of justification, practiced in a reciprocal and universal manner of the participants in a system combined with a reflexive component. The critique includes components of toleration in relation to the need of tradition, ambivalence in relation to the claims of the intolerants, and how spontaneity is needed in contrast to the mechanistic view mainly proposed by Forst. Other sections of the critique include the relation of toleration and whom can participate in the domain of it, inter- and intra-group deviances regarding power and perspective, but also a discussion of toleration and religious minorities – mainly focused on bodily integrity. The critique includes the suggestion that one should approach the question of toleration from a discursive virtue ethics position, a stance that should be developed further during future research. The discussion at the end of the thesis includes a section of the future of toleration and a self-reflexive discussion of theory in relation to the thesis.

    Etiska emotioner: Om emotionens roll i etik2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här uppsatsen har varit att undersöka emotionernas roll i vår etik. Detta har jag undersökt med hjälp av filosofen Martha Nussbaum, vilken har utformat en väl tilltagen teori om både emotioner och dess roll i etik. Genom att sätta upp tre punkter på vad en teori om emotioners roll i etik bör innehålla, (1. innehåll, 2. giltighet, 3. a) motivation och b) handling) har jag tolkat och analyserat Nussbaums teori, som hon skriver om i sina böcker Hiding from humanity: disgust, shame, and the law och Upheavals of thought: the intelligence of emotions.

    Nussbaums teori har behandlat alla punkter jag ställde upp och bör därmed anses vara komplett, om än inte helt övertygande på alla punkter. Det hon kommit fram till är:

    1. En emotion består av kognitiva processer som genom sitt fokus på ett medvetet objekt bildar övertygelser och värderingar om sådant som berör det vi tillskriver vara viktigt.

    2. Emotionen har inte ensamt giltighet att besluta huruvida en handling är rätt eller fel.

    3. a) Den har en stark motiverande funktion, men innebär inte att en 3 b) handling måste äga rum.

    Nussbaums teori är väl utarbetad när hon förklarar varför det är viktigt att emotionen bör ha en roll i vår etik. Teorin är dock mindre utarbetad, och mindre övertygande, när det gäller att förklara hur det ska gå till när vi adapterar emotionerna på etiken.

    After Fukushima: nuclear power and societal choice2015In: Journal of Risk Research, ISSN 1366-9877, E-ISSN 1466-4461, Vol. 18, no 3, p. 291-303Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of article is to evaluate nuclear power in relation to alternative energy sources. A central claim is that the accident in Fukushima does not change the challenges facing the global system for electricity production. Given the need to minimize climate change and that nuclear power provides electricity with lower carbon emissions than fossil fuels, it is impossible to replace both nuclear power and fossil fuel plants in a few years. These plants provide a substantial part of our total generating capacity and cannot be easily substituted. However, if we made significant but non-radical reductions of our electricity consumption, the process of replacing both nuclear power and fossil fuels with renewable sources becomes easier. Reduction can be motivated by an egalitarian theory of justice which claims that it is wrong to maintain a lifestyle that threatens present humans and transfers risks unto future generations. Finally, it is concluded that our total electricity consumption is as important as its production when we plan for our society’s energy future.
