    A Dangerous or Necessary Style?: An examination of the relevance of style in philosophy2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    No form of philosophy is without literary style. This is not always appreciated and opponents of style within philosophy often seem to be unaware of the role of style. Arguments that style is bad, good, or that diversity of styles is good needs to be investigated so that the underlying presuppositions and the meaning of different literary styles becomes clear.

    This thesis examines three arguments for and against style within philosophy and the relevance of literary style for the philosophical method. I investigate what arguments and fundamental assumptions about language that underlies the judgments that literary style in philosophy is either 1.) bad, 2.) good or, 3.) both bad and good (a diversity position).

    An analysis of three different positions to the question of the relevance of style will be performed. The analysis focuses on the basic understandings of what language is and does and reveals the underlying presuppositions of the attitudes towards style in philosophy. Only then can the different positions and attitudes towards style be defended and examined in an interesting and relevant way. The debate about philosophical style often misses a significant point because many are unaware of the philosophical presuppositions behind the arguments, and the argumentation risks to be flawed in relation to this.

    Firstly, a presentation of three different attitudes towards the relevance of style to the philosophical method is outlined. The approaches are represented by a reading of philosophers who either describe the relevance of literary style as 1.) bad, or not important for the method, 2.) important/necessary for the method, or 3.) that diversity is good for philosophy. Secondly, I examine how these three approaches are affected by the underlying philosophy of language with a focus on theories of metaphor. Depending on how one believes that language is related to reality and ourselves, one will assess style as a more, or less, relevant and contributing aspect of the philosophical work and method. The analysis shows that metaphors and other literary stylistic tools might sometimes be necessary and mediate something that cannot be expressed in another way: language can never capture the full potential of reality.

    En verkligt overklig Gud: om sambandet mellan non-realism och religiös pluralism2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I examine the relation between religious non-realism and religious pluralism. Religious pluralism is celebrated by it's adherents, to be benevolent and tolerant towards other religions truth claims and practices. Religious non-realism is also, by its adherents, praised for its including way to look upon truth claims and differing opinions about reality. When it comes to questions like what there is and what is not, does God exist or does he not etc. the religious non-realist is prone to less dogmatism and definite answers than metaphysical realists. Or at least so does the non-realists themselves like to think. What I examine in this essay is whether religious non-realism pragmatically implies religious pluralism, or if a non-realist judiciously can dismiss religious pluralism and instead adopt a form of confessional view of a specifik religion. Religious exclusivism, like the one Alvin Plantinga defends, rejects the possibility of x being both true and false. If a religious claim is taken to be true then incompatible claims have to be considered false according to this view. This fits poorly whith religious non-realism since the latter does not embrace a correspondance theory of truth. Religious pluralism is strongly criticized, among others for leaving “God” or other religious entities empty and whithout characteristics or content. This, because if God is litterally indescribable and unreachable, we would have no reason to believe that God has the chatacteristics we think he has. If religious pluralism cannot answer to the criticism, and if non-realism can not help pluralism evade the problems, then we are in need of a religious inclusivism that does not depend on metaphysical realism. I propose, what I have called, a pragmatic non-realistic inclusivism as an answer to the problem. This is a non-realistic theory that evades metaphysical realism and reductionism of religion, but nevertheless can prefere one religion before others. Not because one religion is concidered to have metaphysical and objective truth while others do not, but because one could prefere a specific religious language and consider that religion to be the most adequate response to human life

    Försonar Jesus alla?: en undersökning av försoningslärors relation till pluralism och inklusivism2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay the coherence between three theories of atonement are analysed with religiouspluralism and religious inclusivism. The atonement theories analysed are the classical, theobjective, and the subjective theory. The result shows if the role of Jesus as saviour in the Passionchanges if the specific theory of atonement is combined with religious pluralism or religiousinclusivism. Through an analysis of the coherence between the three theories of atonement andpluralism and inclusivism, it is made clear that the notion of truth is not viewed in the same waywithin the theories of atonement and religious pluralism and inclusivism. The classical and theobjective theory meets problems when combined with religious pluralism because of this. Only oneform of religious pluralism, the restrictive pluralism, is compatible with theese two theories ofatonement. All forms of religious inclusivism are coherent with the classical and the objectivetheory but not with the subjective theory wich is much more compatible with religious pluralism.

    Vem vill dö för en metafor?: En undersökning av religiöst språkbruk från ett feministiskt perspektiv2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to examine how God-talk can be used to say something reality depicting and potentially true, and at the same time contribute to a feminist aim where women and men are equally qualified in their talk about God. A pure shift from male to female metaphors and properties applied to God is rejected. Religious language that is used from a radical semantic realistic or radical semantic anti-realistic point of view is also rejected since those positions are not in line with the feminist aims.

    Metaphors are of value when examining how to speak about God. It is examined if, and in that case how, metaphors can express truths and say something reality depicting. It is argued that a theory of metaphors based on semantic modest anti-realism contributes with something more distinct than a theory of metaphors based on realism does. This distinction highlights the different uses in language between an analogical way and a modest anti-realistic use of metaphors.

    The three classical “ways” in religious language – univocal, analogical, and equivocal language – are possible to use from a feminist perspective of religious language. It is argued, however, that religious language that is supposed to be in line both with a feminist agenda and be able to contribute to our understanding of God, ourselves, and express truths must be based on a semantic modest realism or semantic modest anti-realism.

    Analogical language is the one and only religious “way” that is compatible with both semantic modest realism and semantic modest anti-realism. For that reason, it is argued, the analogical language has an advantage over univocal and equivocal language.

    Finally, four criteria are set up that a good feministic metaphor must achieve, and some remarks about the research of feminism and religious language still to examine is made.

    Mötet med det skrivna ordet: Kvinnors läsande och skrivande under 1700-talet2019Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis study how women in 18th century Sweden used reading and writing and how these skills could be a source of income. Historians have studied how many could read during this period or how writing was taught in the parish school. How these skills were used have, however, been overlooked. The main questions are: How, and in which circumstances, did women use reading and writing? Who were these women? What type of return did reading and writing have?

    To study how literacy was used is not without difficulty. The traces are often scattered in different types of source material. Several types of sources material have therefore been analyzed. Material like moving certificates, funeral sermons, personals, account books, verifications, church protocols, contracts, court records, recipes amongst others have been used.

    This thesis shows that women used reading and writing in different ways. There were not a question of one type of literacy but different types of literacies – it depended on the situation. A writing ability that was limited in one situation could be sufficient in another. By focus on social practice, this thesis argues that women´s reading and writing could have different types of return depending on individual and situation.

    Daniel Ndoundou: Väckelseledare i den Evangeliska Kyrkan i Kongo2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Daniel Ndoundou (1911 – 1986) was born in the southern part of French Equatorial Africa, close to the border of the Belgian Congo. At an early age he joined the Swe-dish protestant mission. As a young man he began to work as an evangelist and in 1946 he was ordained pastor. The following year a spiritual revival started and soon Daniel Ndou¬ndou became its leader, a position he held for the rest of his life.

    The aim of this thesis was to describe and analyse how Daniel Ndoundou carried out his ministry as a revival leader in the intersection between traditional beliefs and the new religion introduced by the protestant missionaries. He experienced the pro-cess of his country gaining its independence and the founding of the autonomous Evangelical Church of Congo. As a well-known counsellor and healer he received many pilgrims at his home. During revival meetings he sometimes preached to thou-sands of people. He had to take a stand on different movements of political and religious character that emerged especially during the colonial era.

    The thesis shows that the doctrines adopted by Daniel Ndoundou were close to those of the missionaries. However, he sometimes accepted and applied practices that were seen as controversial by his Church leaders. This was particularly evident when he invited people to the “Pool of Siloam” where he organized ritual baths for healing. The thesis also describes the legacy left by Daniel Ndoundou namely how the Evangelical Church of Congo manages the revival almost 30 years after his death. Many charismatic Christians play an important role and for the local pastor they are sometimes difficult to handle. The void left by Daniel Ndoundou is strongly felt by many church members since he was seen as the authority in matters relating to spiritual gifts.

    Pasteur Daniel Ndoundou: Dirigeant de réveil dans l’Église Évangélique du Congo2016Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [fr]

    Le pasteur Daniel Ndoundou (1911-1986), de nationalité congolaise, a d’abord servi dans la Mission Évangélique Suédoise, ensuite dans l’Église Évangélique du Congo. Quand un réveil spirituel éclate en 1947, pasteur Ndoundou devient son dirigeant et son encadreur, un engagement qui fut le sien jusqu’à sa mort.

    Dans cet ouvrage, qui est la traduction d’une thèse de doctorat présentée à l’Université d’Uppsala, Suède, l’auteur décrit le rôle de ce dirigeant du Réveil, un réveil qui avait plusieurs aspects caractéristiques. La culture traditionnelle a marqué en grande partie ce Réveil, comme on pouvait le voir dans la liturgie, notamment dans les cantiques et l’utilisation des instruments de musique. Pour le dirigeant du Réveil, il fut toujours important de déterminer ce qui, dans les traditions et croyances traditionnelles, pouvait être accepté dans le Réveil et dans la vie de l’Église.

    L’auteur de cette thèse, de nationalité suédoise, a vécu plusieurs années dans les deux républiques Congo, et veut, à travers cette biographie, donner sa contribution à la documentation d’une époque passionnante de l’histoire de l’Église.

    The Hero and the Law: A Study of Silius Italicus' Punica2014Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study of Silius Italicus’ Punica is executed by means of the analytical tools provided in Hegel’s Aesthetics together with the Weberian concept of the Idealtypus. The Punica and in particular a group of its protagonists are examined in relation to the “Hegelian Idealtypus of epic”, in order to identify the driving forces in the narrative and the pivotal conflict of the poem.

    I argue that although the Punica displays numerous traditional epic features regarding formal criteria and subject matter, its historical situation must be taken into consideration as well as its text-internal qualities. Accordingly, the Punica must be considered a Kunstepos.

    Furthermore, in the frequent occurrences of conflict and disintegration within the epicizing narrative, the poetic principle of drama emerges. This quality is shared by Livy’s reflective and pragmatical history. The dramatic principle, however, is not allowed its full realization. The narrating subject of the Punica appropriates the space of the objective narrator of the ideal-typical epic, but is substantially the counterpart to historiography’s ideological epitomator. The narrating subject’s point of view is closely connected to the notions of Roman fides, ius and mos, which are construed as opposites to Carthaginian unpredictability and primitivism. However, several of the central Roman protagonists also have problematic relationships to these notions and fail to comply with the expectations imposed on them as state officials. Above all, this becomes obvious through their defeat and death.

    Hence, the pivotal conflict of the Punica is the struggle to yoke together epic heroism and historically oriented rationality. The parties of the conflict can be expressed as “the law”, as a metonym for the ideological demands of the Roman state, and “the hero” embodied by the generals that fight and die, but without recognition.

    In four close readings, the characters Gracchus, Flaminius, Paulus and Marcellus are studied. They express in different ways the incompatibility between the heroic inner driving forces and the demands of usefulness and rationality associated with the Roman state.

    The aesthetic turn: Exploring the religious dimensions of digital technology2016In: Approaching Religion, ISSN 1799-3121, E-ISSN 1799-3121, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 156-163Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The arena for developing digital technology has undergone an aesthetic turn, broadening the focus from a functionalist approach producing centralized systems in the 1970s and 1980s to an increased awareness of the aesthetic aspects of the individual user’s interaction with technology in the 1990s and 2000s. Within the academic research fields studying digital technology (e.g. Human-Computer Interaction and Interaction Design) the aesthetic turn has resulted in a shift from a strong emphasis on user behaviour to an increased interest in aesthetic perspectives on the role of the designer, the design process, and the design material. Within these fields, aesthetics has often been interpreted as belonging to the realm of the individual; personal experiences such as pleasure, engagement, and emotions have been emphasized in both technology development and technology research. Aesthetics is not, however, only an individual phenomenon but also has relational and structural components that need to be acknowledged. Structural aspects of aesthetics condition the possibilities for individuals interacting with digital technology. Thus, the tension between individual and relational aspects of aesthetics in digital technology also reflects a tension between freedom and limitation; between change and permanence; between destabilizing and stabilizing forces. Such a broadened understanding of aesthetics offers a model of digital technology that roughly corresponds to Mark C. Taylor’s definition of religion. Taylor argues that religion is constituted by, on the one hand, a figuring moment characterized by structural stability and universality, and, on the other hand, a disfiguring moment characterized by disruption, particularity, and change. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the aesthetic turn and Taylor’s definition of religion to illustrate similarities between the two, suggesting possible religious dimensions of digital technology and how that can inform our understanding of people’s interaction with digital technology.

    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande uppsats syftar till att, utifrån relevanta teorier, beskriva, analysera och jämföra marknadsföringen av och genomslaget hos två konsertserier på Kulturhuset i Stockholm. För att se hur arbetsprocessen skiljer sig åt utifrån olika faktorer, är analysobjekten valda med tanke på deras skillnader i musikgenre och omfattning. "The Critic´s Choice" är fyra konserter med nutida konstmusik, "Konserter att pausa till" är tre konserter inom singer/songwriter-genren. Då internt samarbete ses som en allt viktigare faktor för en lyckad extern insats, har jag också tittat närmare på hur produktions- och marknadsenheterna förhåller sig till varandra. De teoretiska utgångspunkterna är således hämtade ur forskningsområdena intern kommunikation, marknadsföring och publicitet.

    Uppsatsen använder sig utav kvalitativ fallstudiemetodik, och baserar sig främst på enskilda intervjuer med fem anställda på Kulturhuset: de båda producenterna för respektive projekt, programchefen, marknadschefen samt den informationssekreterare som är marknadsansvarig för programavdelningen.

    Resultaten visar att det allmänt råder vissa meningsskiljaktigheter mellan enheterna, vilket kan förklaras med att de olika enheterna har olika slags kompetenser, erfarenheter och syn på marknadsföring. Samarbetet kan teoretiseras genom att fysisk närhet samt gemensamma kulturer gör att det kommuniceras mera inom än mellan respektive enhet. Marknadsföringen har i uppsatsen kategoriserats enligt marknadsmixteorin (produkt, plats, pris, påverkan), varav det sista steget, påverkan, har undersökts via nio olika delmoment. Av dessa framgår att föranalys respektive efteranalys inte användes lika uttalat i arbetet med Pauskonserterna som i Critic´s Choice, annars har alla steg inkluderats. Critic´s Choice hade en mer omfattande marknadsföringsstrategi och fick också mer uppmärksamhet i massmedia, däremot inte riktigt lika mycket som det förväntades. För Pauskonserterna var det mediala genomslaget över förväntan i förhållande till marknadsföringsinsatserna, vilket delvis kan förklaras med att singer/songwriter­genren är mer kommersiellt gångbar än nutida konstmusik.
