    Kärleksfull, nära och distanserad: - en religionssociologisk studie av hur unga vuxna i Credo och KRISS beskriver sin tro med särsklit fokus på beskrivningar av Gud och Jesus.2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In a study conducted by the Swedish National Board of Youth Affairs from 2007 close to one out of two young people answered that they believe in a God or higher power. The study ”Religion as a resource?” (2012) shows that religion is still a resource in the life of many young people. The life- and self-understanding, that takes place in the life of young people, is in many ways independent of a church, institution and/or tradition, and any contact with religion primarily takes place in a secularized context. The young people that express that religion is an important part of their life are in minority, as are those who choose to engage in a Christian organization. KRISS and Credo, two Christian Swedish student associations are examples of such organizations. In this study I focus on KRISS and Credo by interviewing seven young adults from these organizations to see what shapes their faith.   

    The aim of this study is to examine how young adults relate to the traditional interpretations and expressions of faith within the Christian context they have chosen to engage in, especially how they describe God and Jesus, and if there are any differences between the two organizations.

     To help in this understanding I have used Paul Heelas and Linda Woodheads theory about ”the subjective turn” and their two perspectives how people relate to religion and spirituality: ”life–as religion” and ”subjective–life spirituality” (Heelas & Woodhead, 2005). A question in this study was if /how these theories can contribute to a deeper understanding of how young adults shape their faith?     

     The results show that although there are small tendencies toward ”subjective–life spirituality”, the descriptions given by the informants from KRISS and Credo are predominantly associated with ”life-as religion”. There are minor differences between the two organizations. However these are subtle and could be the expression of individual rather than organizational differences.

    En mångfalds påverkan: En religionsfilosofisk studie i trosvisshet relaterat till religiös pluralism2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The premise for this study is the question how we should relate to people with different religious beliefs. The aim is to examine if an existence characterized by a religious diversity should affect the certainty and confidence in our faith. To answer my question I have turned to the philosophers David Basinger, Mikael Stenmark, William Lane Craig and Robert McKims different views on this issue. Using an approach based on a comparative method and argument analysis I have then assessed their different opinions in the matter. Based on my own discussion of these arguments I conclude that a religious diversity should imply a reduction in our own religious confidence and that it should be reduced in relation to the amount of disagreement that exist between conflicting religious perspectives in an specific case and matter. This may also foster a reduction of religious intolerance through a nuanced of our own belief while highlighting the conceptions and values in our own religion that stresses tolerance.

    Religious perspectives on Existential questions: A Psychological Examination of the Centrality of Religion in relation to Meaning-systems2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to investigate to what extent the centrality of religion influences the existential aspects of an individual’s meaning-system. To do this I used a meaning-system framework and a qualitative approach in which I gathered information through a questionnaire based on the Centrality of the Religious Meaning System Scale and by conducting 8 semi-structured interviews with young adults in Uppsala, Sweden. The analysis of these interviews was implemented through an abductive method. The theoretical perspective is based on the concept Global meaning and the General attribution theory. My conclusion is that those participating in the study describe their meanings differently depending on their religious meaning-system. The thesis also shows that the religious interpretations to a large degree were actualized by situational and dispositional factors. This suggest that the religious attributions were made to meet the participants need for meaning, control, and self-esteem. Finally, the thesis indicates that the centrality of one’s religion appears to inform the religious meaning-system, as well as, functions as a dispositional factor. Thus, this thesis suggests that the centrality of one’s religion can be an influential factor in how religious meaning is constructed regarding existential questions.

    Religiös konflikthantering och mystik: En religionspsykologisk studie om konfliktprocesser relaterat till mystika traditioner2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to identify the psychological processes and themes behind religiously motivated violence and to investigate whether there are any common components in the major mystical traditions that can be used to prevent religious conflicts. To do this I use a qualitative approach to analyze interviews with religious terrorists based on James Jones’s relational psychoanalysis and Peter Herriot’s social identity theory. The analysis has been carried out through a deductive approach based on specific categories and concepts. In my study I have also used Antoon Geels’s account of common features within the major mystical traditions and linked these to Jones and Herriots theories to see whether they can prevent religious conflicts or not. My conclusion in the study is that there are religious themes such as the drive for a complete purification and the splitting of the world into polarized all-good and all-evil sides that can contribute to religious conflicts. My conclusion is also that psychological processes that contribute to religious violence are rooted in the dominant social identity and its relationship to the individual's self-esteem. Finally, there are common features in the mystical traditions such as the conception of the deity and the view on humanity that can be used in creating a meeting and identification between groups and thus prevent religious violence from occurring.

    The Army of God: An examination of religiously motivated violence from a psychology of religion perspective.2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine psychological processes that can contribute to religiously motivated violence from a psychology of religion perspective in relation to the collective meaning-system of the Christian militant anti-abortion movement the Army of God. The study applied a single-case design and the data was collected through semi-structured interviews with 3 prominent figures within Army of God, as well as through 43 qualitative documents and 4 autobiographical books. The collected data was analyzed through a deductive approach, implementing the concept of sanctification, social identity theory, selective moral disengagement, and the Staircase to Terrorism model. The results show that the collective meaning-system of the Army of God can be understood as a form of religious fundamentalism that acts as a frame that binds the members together, and from which social categorization and group identification can induce acts of violence. The results also demonstrate that abortion is perceived as a grave injustice and destruction of something sacred, and how it leads to a moral outrage and aggression by constituting a threat towards one’s social identity. This threat moves the individuals towards a ‘black-and-white’ and ‘the ends justify the means’ mentality. The act of violence is further prompted by a perceived duty from God and facilitated by a dehumanization of the perceived enemy. The findings of the study address the need of primary empirical data in the psychological research of violent extremism. Furthermore, it brings further knowledge regarding religiously motivated violence and leaderless resistance by taking into account the search for significance and sacred values. In contrast to previous research the current study also demonstrates that a leader or a well-structured group is not necessarily a key factor when explaining religiously motivated violence from a social psychological perspective. This can contribute to the theoretical understanding regarding social identity and a collective meaning-making in relation to violent extremism and lone-wolf terrorism.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The purpose of this study is to examine how Greece’s migration system functions and how immigration and asylum policies manifest themselves during the countries current severe economic crisis. More precisely, examining how the regulatory framework and policies regarding refugees' and migrant situation effects practical implementation. The research questions raised are; - How are refugees and other migrants' rights in Greece respected, from a legal, political and moral perspective? What impact can racism have on the treatment of refugees and other migrants? A contextual analysis of ideas through an analysis of the political programs/agendas was used and contrasted, through theories concerning racism, nationalism and globalization to further nuance the situation concerning refugees' rights. Furthermore the study is analyzed through a HR perspective or more precisely through relevant conventions, regulations and EU directives. The conclusions are that Greece has laws and policies regarding migration, however these regulations have major flaws concerning their practical outcome. Improvements have been made to the migration system constituted of new government agencies intended to meet EU-standards, concerning the management of the asylum process. Unfortunately these improvements have been found wanting. Globalization is challenging the national and regional laws. EU and its regulations concerning asylum, does not take into account differentiated contextual realities concerning EU´s member states. People generally intend to travel through Greece and are consequently sent back to Greece by other EU states, without significant support it becomes problematic to handle this volume of people. The European Union’s protectionist policies create barriers and make access to the region more difficult, meanwhile people of other nationalities flee or migrate in hope of a more secure and humane existence. With xenophobia on the rise (both politically and socially) migrants face further difficulties, for instance fear of deportation can make the reporting of hate crimes to the authorities complicated to say the least.

    Indian Protestants and their Religious Others: Views of Religious Diversity among Christians in Bangalore2019Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study gives an in-depth insight into ways that ordinary Christians in a multireligious context think about religious plurality. It examines how Indian Protestants reflect upon other religions and upon the situation of religious diversity.

    Methodologically, the study relies mainly on qualitative interviews with Pentecostal and Church of South India (CSI) lay members and pastors from Bangalore, south India. The interviews are analysed through thematic analysis.

    The study reveals a theological diversity among interviewees. The major differences are found among the clergy, while the views of Pentecostal and CSI lay interviewees show many similarities. The dominant theological perspective is evangelical and this forms an “evangelical lens” that colours attitudes to other religions. Additionally, a general Protestant perspective emerges that reflects a typically Protestant emphasis on Christ and the Bible, as well as a liberal Protestant perspective which focuses on social issues.

    Salvation, primarily understood in terms of eternal life for the individual, is central to the ideas interviewees have about the difference between Protestant Christianity and other religions. Perceptions of Hinduism reveal stereotypical views which portray it as an antithesis to Christian faith. Views of Islam are more positive, and similarities with Protestantism are perceived. Attitudes to different Christian traditions, and to Catholicism in particular, illustrate that the line between religious self and other can be drawn also between different forms of Christianity.

    An important finding of the study is that the use of religious images is a central issue for these Protestant Christians which affects their views of other religions and that it signals religious otherness to them. The dichotomy between religious self and other refers primarily to salvation and religious efficacy, not to everyday life. As people, Muslims and particularly Hindus are portrayed in a positive light. Interreligious friendship and unstressful everyday interaction characterise interviewees’ depictions of relations with religious others in Bangalore. The religious minority status becomes plainly evident in relation to mission. Interviewees negotiate between an ideal of active evangelism and social considerations. This study reveals that it is possible to combine theological exclusivism in theory with respect for the religious other in practice.

    Homosexuell och religiös? - diskursanalys av homosexuella mäns identitetsskapande i skönlitteratur med fokus på homosexualitet och religiositet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to examine homosexual men’s identities, and focus on how they form their identities in fiction when it comes to being both homosexual and religious. In order to be able to approach and study this phenomenon, three research questions are used: how is identity constructed discursively when it comes to the combination of homo- sexuality and religiosity, what affects the formation of homosexual men’s religious/non- religious identity and how do homosexuality and religiosity affect one another in identity formation?

    The theory used in this study is discourse theory which includes the following concepts that have been chosen and used to analyze the material: antagonism, hegemonic interven- tion, hegemony, interpellation, subject position and the chain of equivalence. Together with these concepts and with template analysis style, a qualitative discourse analysis is made to categorize and analyze the findings made in the material. The material in this study consists of Jonas Gardell’s novel Torka aldrig tårar utan handskar, 1. Kärleken and Tony Kushner’s play script Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes. The material was chosen because of the themes homosexuality and religiosity are includ- ed, and thus were eligible to be used in this study. Three religious groups are being touched upon in this study, namely Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism and Judaism.

    This study showed that the relationship between the identities homosexual and religious is mostly antagonistic in the material used in this study, but there was an exception in once case where the combination of these two identities seemed to be possible. The an- tagonistic relationship between these identities lead to a hegemonic intervention where the individual had to choose the one or the other of the identities in order to reach hegem- ony. In most cases homosexual and religious were not included in the same chain of equivalence, and seemed to rule each other out.

    This paper comprises a critical examination of foundationalist conceptions of comprehensive doctrines. I argue that John Rawls, the towering figure of this debate, operates with a foundationalist conception of comprehensive doctrines that has shaped the debate's view of relevant alternatives (often referred to as exclusivism and inclusivism).

    A Problem with Alston's Indirect Analogy-Argument from Religious Experience2006In: Religious studies (Print), ISSN 0034-4125, E-ISSN 1469-901X, Vol. 42, p. 329-341Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, William Alston's arguemnt from religious experience in Perceiving God is characterized and assessed as an indirect analogy-argument. Such arguments, I propose,, should establish two similarities between sense perception (sp) and religious experience (cmp): a structural and a functional. I argue that Alston neglects functional similarity, and that sp and cmp actually perform different functions within the practices they belong to. Alston's argument is therefore significantly weaker than generally assumed. Finally, I argue that regardless of whether an increased emphasis on fruits could strengthen indirect analogy-arguments or not, this is not a strategy available to Alston as long as he retains his commitments to religious exclusivism and a religious metaphysical realism.

    Forces by Which We Live: Religion and Religious Experience from the Perspective of a Pragmatic Philosophical Anthropology2002Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study argues that a pragmatic conception of religion would enable philosophers to make important contributions to our ability to handle concrete problems involving religion. The term 'philosophical anthropology', referring to different interpretative frameworks, which philosophers draw on to develop conceptions of human phenomena, is introduced. It is argued that the classical pragmatists embraced a philosophical anthropology significantly different from that embraced by most philosophers of religion; accordingly, pragmatism offers an alternative conception of religion. It is suggested that a conception of religion is superior to another if it makes more promising contributions to our ability to handle extra-philosophical problems of religion.

    A pragmatic philosophical anthropology urges us to view human practices as responses to shared experienced needs. Religious practices develop to resolve tensions in our views of life. The pictures of human flourishing they persent reconstruct our views of life, thereby allowing more significant interaction with the environment, and a more significant life.

    A modified version of reflective equilibrium is developed to show how we, on a pragmatic conception of religion, are able to supply resources for criticism and reform of religious practices, so the extra-philosophical problems of religion can be handled. Mainstream philosophy of religion attempts to offer such resources by presenting analogy-arguments from religious experience. Those arguments are, however, unconvincing. A comparison of the two conceptions of religion thus results in a recommendation to reconstruct philosophy of religion.

    Justification and Critique: The Will to Believe and the Public Nature of Religious Belief2016In: William James Studies, ISSN 1933-8295, E-ISSN 1933-8295, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 28-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    “The Will to Believe” remains one of the most intriguing and controversial pragmatic contributions to philosophy of religion. Richard Rorty has offered an interesting analysis of its controversial character and suggests that we should see James as arguing for a privatization of religion: the right to adopt a believing attitude is limited to those private projects that in no way affect others. I propose another reading that (a) acknowledges that religious (and other existential commitments) have an inevitably public dimension and (b) uses that element as a vehicle for critical reflection. To that end, I make a heuristic distinction between two phases of inquiry that I label justification and critique, and go on to argue that when combined with a pragmatic philosophical anthropology, a Jamesian approach helps clear the ground for a more comprehensive critical reflection on religion and religious traditions. Whereas Rorty sees any acknowledgement of a public dimension of religious belief as a threat to democracy, I believe that we can rather say that such acknowledgements offer resources for those who seek to develop more democratic forms of religion.

    Philosophy of Religion as Cultural Politics: A(nother) Rortian Proposal2014In: American Journal of Theology and Philosophy, ISSN 0194-3448, Vol. 35, no 1, p. 25-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper turns the tools of cultural politics that Richard Rorty developed in his later philosophy against Rortian anticlericalism. It is argued that Rorty is insufficiently attentive to the distinction between ideal end-states and what John Dewey called “ends in view”, and this leads him to formulate a cultural politics of religion that, ultimately, risks playing into the hands of his opponents in the debate over the role of religion in democratic societies. Drawing on work by Stuart Rosenbaum, I also sketch an alternative version of a Rortian cultural politics of religion that breaks with the foundationalist character of both Rorty’s and his opponents’ views of religion.

    Pragmatism and Moral Critique of Religion2010In: American journal of theology and philosophy, ISSN 0194-3448, Vol. 31, no 1, p. 3-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I draw attention to the central role that moral critique plays (or may play) in our reflection on religious practices. I argue that pragmatism provides helpful tools to articulate and develop such critical reflection.

    Public deliberation as separate or embedded: Deweyan democracy and its relation to political liberalism2007In: Minerva, ISSN 1393-614X, E-ISSN 1393-614X, Vol. 11, p. 1-29Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores two different strategies that may be useful to give substance to Deweyan democracy?s claim that in order for democratic associations to develop into communities, citizens need to learn how to conduct inquiry in a social setting. The two strategies reflect a principal division among views of public deliberation. The first strategy, the separation strategy, closely resembles Rawls? political liberalism by advocating the development of a separate sphere of public deliberation, guided by factual and normative assumptions that we need not accept anywhere outside that sphere. Comprehensive doctrines are to be held outside of public deliberation, a move which makes possible a rather straightforward application of Dewey?s theory of inquiry. The second strategy, the embeddedness strategy, stresses the fact that public deliberation is inevitably embedded in broader spheres of social life, and that the development towards community must be piecemeal, and go hand in hand with developments in social life as a whole. I argue that there are weighty reasons for doubting the feasibility of the separation strategy, and I also argue that these reasons are relevant for our evaluation of all versions of the separation strategy, including political liberalism. I conclude that one of Deweyan democracy?s most important assets, which deserves further examination, is its insight that reflection on public deliberation needs to take its embedded character into account.

    Rortys kulturpolitik och frågan om religion i det offentliga samtalet2011In: Svensk teologisk kvartalskrift, ISSN 0039-6761, Vol. 87, no 1, p. 26-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper comprises a critical discussion of Richard Rorty’s proposal to reorient philosophy of religion in the direction of cultural politics – that is, a never-ending set of negotiations about the kind of society we want to live in and how to achieve it. While I find much of value in Rorty’s approach, I show that Rorty neglects to take his own suggestions seriously enough, something which becomes particularly obvious in his own cultural politics-approach to the question of the role of religion in public deliberation. Here, Rorty neglects the importance of the discourse which serves as the background against which different cultural politics-proposals are understood and assessed, and I show that the analysis of religious belief in terms of “faith” that he suggests as a matter of fact plays right into the hands of his opponents within the religion in public deliberation-debate.

     

    To retain what is fruitful in Rorty’s approach, then, I argue that we need to pay more attention to the dominant discourse within a given field, and seek ways to challenge rather than reproduce assumptions within that discourse. Such an “improved” version of cultural politics may well function as one, among, several, approaches to problems within philosophy of religion, and need not exclude that we, in dealing with other problems, operate with a more “traditional” approach.

    What's Wrong with the Adequacy-Argument? A Pragmatic Diagnosis2011In: Sophia - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, Metaphysical Theology and Ethics, ISSN 0038-1527, Vol. 50, no 1, p. 11-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When confronted with the question of which philosophical conception of religion to consider most adequate, many philosophers appeal to what I call the adequacy-arguemnt: that we should prefer the one that looks most adequate from the perspective of religious believers. In this paper, I provide a critique of the adequacy-argument based on a pragmatic analysis of adequacy-judgments according to which reflective adequacy-judgments are forward-looking, and hence include considerations of the consequences of adopting different judgments as guides for conduct. It is this forward-looking character that is virtually absent with the current adequacy-debate. The major advantage of a pragmatic analysis if adequacy is itself forward-looking: it would enable philosophers of religion to play a more critical and constructive role vis-a-vis religious practices than presently.
