    Vetenskapshistoriedisciplinens etiska rötter: Kulturkritik, idealism och dygdelära i George Sartons kamp om begreppet humanism2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker vetenskapshistorikern George Sartons (1884–1956) nyhumanism i ljuset av den kritik han riktade mot humanister och de brännande samhällsproblemen han såg i sin samtid. Tidigare forskning har tolkat Sarton som isolerad från samtida intellektuella diskussioner, poängterat Sartons idéers begränsade framgångar och tolkat dessa som ett förespråkande av enhetsvetenskap mer hemmahörande i 1800-talet. Dessa studier har inte i tillräckligt hög utsträckning uppmärksammat Sartons kritik av humanister som en begripliggörande kontext. Humanister kritiserades på grund av deras avståndstagande från vetenskaper resulterade i en verklighetsfrånvändhet som gjorde humanister till irrelevanta för samtiden. Undersökningen visar att Sartons nyhumanism framför allt förespråkade en etik och världsbild för att kunna hantera den tekniska moderniteten. Vetenskapshistoria var ett medel för att ingjuta goda moraliska karaktärsdrag i individer. Genom att fokusera på begreppet humanism synliggörs Sartons försök till att förskjuta betydelsen från klassicism mot antropocentrism för att formulera en samtidsrelevant ideologi.

    Apotekarprofessionen före och efter förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken 19712013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis

    Abstract

    Nils-Otto Ahnfelt: Apotekarprofessionen före och efter förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken

    1971. Uppsala universitet: Inst. f. idé- och lärdomshistoria, C-uppsats, Höstterminen 2013.

     

    Syftet med undersökningen är att studera om apotekarprofessionen förändrats i samband med förstatligandet av de svenska apoteken 1971. Då jag inte har hittat någon adekvat genomgång som inte utgör en partsinlaga på något vis valde jag att studera apotekarprofessionen genom att kombinera Aktör-Nätverks-Teori (ANT) med professionaliseringsteorier för att besvara mina två huvudfrågor: ”Vad var det som gjorde att apotekaryrket förändrades?” samt ”Hände det i samband med förstatligandet av apoteken?”

    Jag vill påstå att den första frågan kan besvaras med att apotekaryrket förändrades både som en effekt av industrialiseringen av läkemedelsindustrin men också att förstatligandet av apoteken innebar en likriktning av verksamheten över hela landet. Monopoliseringen av apoteken ledde till en centralisering av beslut och hur verksamheten skulle bedrivas. Lokalutformningen kunde ges en ny skepnad då många nya apotek etablerades och behovet av lokaler för tillverkning minskade kraftigt. Fokus för verksamheten lades på distribution och rådgivning till kunderna på bekostnad av kompetens kring hela läkemedelskedjan från inköp, tillverkning och kontroll. Beträffande den andra frågan så vill jag påstå att förstatligandet i sig medförde att deprofessionaliseringen påskyndades då apoteksmonopolet både kunde påverka utbildningen, styra personalrekrytering och lönesättning utifrån sin monopolställning. En reallönesänkning inträffade under perioden 1970 – 1990 delvis beroende på en accentuerad feminisering av yrket. Enligt en professionaliseringsteori så kan detta också tolkas som att det upprättats ett informellt kontrakt mellan de professionella och staten där professionen förblir autonom och upplever sitt yrke som ett kall. Motprestationen blir en låg lön och därmed en lägre status.

    Slutligen så framtonar en bild av en individ nämligen apotekaren Rune Lönngren. Jag vill påstå att utan apotekaren och ”aktören” Rune Lönngren, så hade inte detta kunnat orkestreras så framgångsrikt som det gjordes. Rune Lönngrens kännedom om branschen, hans partitillhörighet, hans deltagande i flera statliga utredningar samt sist men inte minst att han blev Apoteksbolagets första styrelseordförande under tiden 1970 – 1977 ledde till att han blev en mycket större maktfaktor än vad som framgår av tidigare historiska skildringar.

    Making Early Modern Medicine: Reproducing Swedish Bitters2016In: Ambix, ISSN 0002-6980, E-ISSN 1745-8234, Vol. 63, no 2, p. 162-183Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Historians of science and medicine have rarely applied themselves to reproducing the experiments and practices of medicine and pharmacy. This paper delineates our efforts to reproduce "Swedish Bitters," an early modern composite medicine in wide European use from the 1730s to the present. In its original formulation, it was made from seven medicinal simples: aloe, rhubarb, saffron, myrrh, gentian, zedoary and agarikon. These were mixed in alcohol together with some theriac, a composite medicine of classical origin. The paper delineates the compositional history of Swedish Bitters and the medical rationale underlying its composition. It also describes how we go about to reproduce the medicine in a laboratory using early modern pharmaceutical methods, and analyse it using contemporary methods of pharmaceutical chemistry. Our aim is twofold: first, to show how reproducing medicines may provide a path towards a deeper understanding of the role of sensual and practical knowledge in the wider context of early modern medical culture; and second, how it may yield interesting results from the point of view of contemporary pharmaceutical science.

    Att materialisera (fram)tiden: Om temporalitet och modernitet i Magasin för konst, nyheter och moder2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to examine and analyse if it is possible to distinguish a new perception of time and temporality in the Swedish fashion magazine Magasin för konst, nyheter och moder, and in that case how it is expressed. To discover this, I have used the theories of the philosophers and historians Reinhart Koselleck and Marshall Berman. In their works they have pointed out and described how the early decades of the nineteenth century was a crucial time for our perception of the modern world, in the sense that we ever since then have experienced a gap between the past and the future where we cannot derive our expectations from our past experiences anymore. I have studied if this notion is communicated in the articles, and came to the conclusion that there is a new awareness of time articulated in the magazine. Mainly  there are three different understandings of time and temporality expressed within the magazine – first are those articles that shows a general new awareness of time in a constructive way, neither through a positive or negative perspective. Furthermore, there are also expressions for connections between the materialistic content in the magazine and the view on temporality, where the acknowledgment of a new temporality in fashion seems to also have an impact on a more ideological perception of time. Finally there are articles which portrays the discrepancy between expectation and experience as something with a negative significance for the future, but similarly puts this in a way that illuminates that the future is now something adaptable and possible to influence in a certain direction. This shows a new way of understanding how, in a Swedish nineteenth century context, material culture could affect people’s awareness of time and temporality and hence also their thoughts and outlook of the future even in more abstract issues. The upcoming becomes possible to interpret as something materialistic, and therefore also something more concrete and arguable.

    Can the Author of ’Can the Subaltern Speak’ Act?: Spivaks essä i relation till ’French theory’ i USA2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to analyze some aspects of the historical surroundings in which Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak wrote her famous essay ”Can the Subaltern Speak?”. From a historical perspective, inspired by Quentin Skinner, I examine how Spivak in a context of French theory in U.S. academy criticized Michel Foucault and defended Jacques Derrida. In the first part of my analysis I relate Spivak’s essay to the ”Foucault and Derrida debate” of the sixties and seventies. I argue that many aspects of Derrida’s early critique of Foucault, and many of the themes of that debate in general, was rhetorically repeated by Spivak in ”Can the Subaltern Speak?”. In the second part of my analysis, I discuss how Foucault and Derrida in the context of U.S. academy were, rather than empirical persons, turned into common nouns well incorporated into the academic language. In this context, where Spivak appeared, I analyze how the ”notions” Foucault and Derrida was disputed. I argue that Spivak, during several years before she wrote ”Can the Subaltern Speak?”, had been trying to refute anglophone marxist and postcolonial intellectuals who criticized Derrida. These critics, including Terry Eagleton, Perry Anderson and Edward Said, had been blaming Derrida for being unhistorical, politically evasive and merely textualistic. My argument is that Spivak sought to defend Derrida towards these critics in ”Can the Subaltern Speak?”. In this context, her aim was to emphasize the efficiency of Derrida’s deconstruction as a political tool for marxist, feminist and Third world intellectuals.

    Medaljens baksida: Instrumentmakaren Daniel Ekström och hans efterföljare i 1700-talets Sverige1999Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with scientific instrument-making in Sweden in the 18th century with an overview of the craft in the second half of the 17th century. The main character in this book, Daniel Ekström is introduced in chapter two. His position within the Swedish scientific community is described and the attempts by the Land Survey Board and the Academy of Sciences to institutionalise his business is discussed. Ekström travelled to England and France and the transfer of technology that followed from this journey is discussed. His followers, Johan Ahl and Johan Zacharias Steinholtz and their work are described. In 1762, Ahl moved to Denmark where the geographical circle, invented by Ekström, became an important technical condition for an ambitious mapping project. In Sweden on the other hand, J. Z. Steinholtz' business ended in bankruptcy. The optical instrument-makers are also described, the most prominent being Carl Lehnberg, who, just like Ekström, became a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences. In the final chapter a few comments on experimental physics and it's influence on Swedish instru-ment-making are given. Though most importantly, the failure of the attempt to establish scientific instrument-making is related to a more general change in how the sciences were regarded in Sweden around 1760.

    In appendix one, a comparison is made between a reflecting telescope by Ekström and a telescope by James Short. In appendix two, a list is given over Swedish instrument-makers and preserved Swedish scientific instruments.

    In appendix three, the workshops in Stockholm are displayed on a map.

    God and the moral beings: A contextual study of Thomas Hobbes’s third book in Leviathan2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The question this essay sets out to answer is what role God plays in Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan, in the book “Of a Christian Common-wealth”, in relationship to humans as moral beings. The question is relevant as the religious aspects of Hobbes’s thinking cannot be ignored, although Hobbes most likely had rather secular and sceptical philosophical views. In order to answer the research question Leviathan’s “Of a Christian Common-wealth” will be compared and contrasted with two contextual works: the canonical theological document of the Anglican Church, the Thirty-Nine Articles (1571), and Presbyterian-Anglican document the Westminster Confession (1648). Also, recent scholarly works on Hobbes and more general reference works will be employed and discussed. Hobbes’s views provide a seemingly unsolvable paradox. On the one hand, God is either portrayed, or becomes by consequence of his sceptical and secular state thinking, a distant God in relationship to moral humans in “Of a Christian Common-wealth”. Also, the freedom humans seem to have in making their own moral decisions, whether based on natural and divine, or positive laws, appears to obscure God’s almightiness. On the other hand, when placing Hobbes in context, Hobbes appears to have espoused Calvinist views, with beliefs in predestination and that God is the cause of everything. Rather paradoxically it not unlikely that Hobbes espoused both the views that appear to obscure the role of God, and his more Calvinistic views.

    Rum mellan träden och avstånd till världen: Kalhyggesdebatten och det moderna skogsbruket2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Skogen har genom åren varit föremål för många meningsmotsättningar och konflikter. Ett särskilt symbolladdat centra tycks kalhygget vara och syftet med den här uppsatsen är att med hjälp av ett dagspressmaterial studera hur kalhyggesdebatten tagit sig uttryck historiskt. Debatten har följt på den hegemoniska position kalhyggesbruket erövrat efter andra världskriget inom ramen för storskalighet och rationalitet. Rikligast med exempel har dock 1970-talets första hälft kunnat bestå med. Kalhygget försvaras till stor del utifrån en berättelse om den producerande skogen som anknyter till vad som betecknats som modernitet. Kritiken tar å sin sida spjärn mot andra värden och berättelser som genom att delas av kalhyggets förespråkare blir ett slags teman som debatten kretsar kring. Dessa anknyter såväl till nationalism som till de perspektiv som följde med miljörörelsen och den nya vänstern i samband med den så kallade radikaliseringsvågen. Under 80-talet finns tendenser till att distinktionen mellan att kalhugga och att inte göra det blir mindre självklar men upplevelsen av att skogen skövlas fortsätter att dela lägren. Ebba Lisberg Jensen menar att skogsbruksdebattens kärna ligger i om skogen är helgedom eller råvarulager. Här förslås istället att den avgörande aspekten har att göra med avstånd och huruvida skogen ex- eller inkluderas i den värld vi lever till vardags. Två olika förhållningssätt till skogen som i sig själva inte är omöjliga att förena men vars harmoni utmanas av det storskaliga kalhyggesbrukets fysiska avtryck i skogen. Kalhyggesdebatten kan med andra ord inte ensidigt förstås som en miljöfråga och inte heller som en konflikt mellan ekonomiska intressen kontra rekreations- eller estetiska intressen. Det är en motsättning som genom kalhygget sprungit ur en skiljaktighet mellan olika uppfattningar om vad skogen är och bör vara, om vad berättelsen om skogen i sin essens handlar om.

    Regleringen av Kiruna år 1900: Stadsplanering som medel för att forma en moralisk arbetare2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen handlar om hur stadsplanering användes i sekelskiftets Kiruna som medelför att forma arbetares moral och känsla av gemenskap. Kiruna grundades år 1900 av LKAB som var den styrande aktören i processen. Undersökningen handlar om den moral somstadsplanen skulle förmedla till arbetare, både som individer och som social klass. Som en deli detta identifieras några av de moraliska, politiska och sociala problem som stadsplaneringenförväntades lösa. Kirunas stadsplan var den första i norden av sitt slag att realiseras och denutformades efter en för sekelskiftet ny estetik. Gatunätet var inspirerat av medeltidensslingrande gatumönster och estetiken förknippas med jugend och Arts & Crafts rörelsen.Dessa var en del av en socialutopisk rörelse som ville motverka de negativa sociala ochmoraliska konsekvenser de identifierade i det framväxande kapitalistiska samhället.Undersökningen visar att syftet med gatusystemets utformning skulle skapa starkgemenskap och lojalitet som inte grundade sig på klasskänsla. Att ge staden en vissutformning skulle leda till att höja arbetarens moral. Plantager och trädgårdar var något somprioriterades även i det första planeringsstadiet då närhet till naturen ansågs ha en positivinverkan. Målet var att få lugna, lojala arbetare, som var självständiga och hade god moral.Jag menar att tidigare forskning har förbisett Per Olof Hallmans roll. Konsekvensen bliratt det stora området av privata tomter som LKAB sålde till arbetare för att bygga egna hempå har tolkats som ointresse ifrån bolaget och en ovilja att ta det ekonomiska ansvaret. Genomatt utgå ifrån Hallmans bidrag till stadsplaneringen kommer jag visa att detta var en del av ettstörre projekt för att forma arbetarens moral.

    Bedövade tillstånd: Eter och kloroform inom den medicinska praktiken i Sverige 1847 – 18802019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker de tidiga etableringsprocesserna av metoder för att framställa narkos med hjälp av eter och kloroform vid operationer och förlossningar. Materialet består av artiklar, notiser och protokoll från Svenska Läkarsällskapets förhandlingar och deras tidskrift Hygiea från och med 1847, då eter först används i Sverige, fram till och med år 1880. Genom fokus läggs på metodernas förmåga att framkalla olika grader av medvetslöshet dras slutsatsen att svenska läkare ofta prioriterade målet att uppnå total bedövning både framför mildare bedövning och de risker som metoderna medförde. I jämförelsen mellan operationer och förlossningar konstateras att diskussioner kring smärta och medvetande var mer förekommande och de olika ståndpunkterna mer extrema vid förlossningar.

    Mellan kritisk vetenskap och revolutionär teori: Den marxistiska samhällsvetenskapens utformning i Häften för Kritiska Studier 1968-19712007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The later part of the 1960's was the period when philosophy, science theory and social science influenced by marxism were introduced in the Swedish academic world. This development was closely connected to the radical student's movement and the international "new left". In Sweden, the primary forum for marxist social science was the journal Häften för Kritiska Studier, published by the independent political group Unga Filosofer from 1968 and onwards. During 1968-1969, a discussion took place between Swedish intellectuals, most of them socialists, if not explicitly marxists, concerning the theories of the German philosopher Jürgen Habermas and the "critical theory" of the so-called Frankfurt school of marxist social science. The discussion was partly triggered by the publication of Swedish science theorist Gerard Radnitzky's dissertation Contemporary Scools of Metascience (1968), in which the thought of Jürgen Habermas was for the first time presented to the Swedish academic world in a systematic and comprehensive way. This essay studies the above mentioned discussion, set against the background of the general ideologial and theoretical development which can be seen in the editorials of Häften för Kritiska Studier during 1968-1971. During this period, a general development took place in which the different leftist groups of the 1968 student's and political movements became more radical and outspokenly marxist-leninist in their views. This development is found to be reflected in the editorials. Furthermore, the results of the essay demonstrate that the discussion studied was a largely polemic and ideologically motivated one, in which the actual theories of Jürgen Habermas, the Frankfurt school and "critical theory" were not as central as might have been expected. The concept "critical theory" seems to have been used as a popular term, signifying the ideal of a democratically conscious social science among the new left and the student's movements less radical elements. It was criticized by marxist-leninists for being an idealistic dream, removed from marxist theory, which would only lead to revisionism and bourgeoise resistance against the true revolutionary movement.

    Kloka Gubbar och Visa Gummor: den allmänna debatten kring kvacksalveri och homeopati2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Quacks, fakers and homeopath is only a few of the names to describe a quack doctor. During the beginning of the 20th century Sweden had an uprising of quack doctors which started a debate both in the parliament as well amongst the doctors. Different debate articles about the uprising problem of quack doctors started to show up in varying magazines written by the doctors who wanted to ban the quack doctors and their treatment once and for all. This essay focuses on the general debate about the quack doctors and how it proceeded, but also focuses on the court which had to judge the quack doctors depending on a law from 1683.

    Från naturintresserad till statstjänsteman.: En studie över geologyrkets professionalisering i Sverige mellan 1858 och 1914.2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppkomsten av yrkesidentiteten geolog är i Sverige nära knutet till etableringen av Sveriges geologiska undersökning (SGU) år 1858. I denna uppsats undersöks hur geologens yrke utvecklades under perioden mellan 1858 till 1914, Yrket kom att professionaliseras som ett resultat av samverkan mellan SGU och svenska universitet och högskolor vilket beskrivs i uppsatsen. En genomgång har gjorts av bakgrund och arbetsuppgifter för de geologer som anställdes vid SGU under den aktuella prioden. Vidare beskrivs några praktiska geologiska arbetsuppgifter och vilken betydelse de hade för industrialiseringen av Sverige. SGUs engagemang i malmgeologiska frågor kom att ifrågasättas av värmländska bergsmän och den debatten behandlas även.
