Abstract [sv]

I styrdokument som rör skola och utbildning likställs jämställdhet med samma möjligheter till utbildning och karriär. Det som hindrar jämställdhet antas vara traditionella könsnormer. Vad betyder ’samma möjligheter’ i denna kontext och vad krävs för att realisera detta? Utbildnings- och karriäralternativ ska avkönas, vilket analyseras som att de dels ha samma betydelser för könen, dels vara lika realiserbara. Detta verkar kräva kvantitativ jämställdhet inom varje alternativ. Vad är det då som hindras av könsnormerna? Enligt dokumenten är det individernas autentiska val. Detta analyseras som förverkligandet av antingen den mänskliga naturen eller det individuella självets autentiska önskningar. Båda dessa vägar visar sig vara återvändsgränder. Slutsatsen blir att kvantitativ jämställdhet är det enda substantiella jämställdhetsbegreppet.

Abstract [en]

Feminist theory needs a constructivist account of biological sex for at least two reasons. The first is that as long as female and male are the only two sexes that are taken for granted, being cisgender, heterosexual, and preferably a parent will be the norm, and being intersexed, transgender, bi- or homosexual, infertile or voluntarily childless will be deemed failure. The second is the fact that, usually, sex and gender come together in the way that is expected, i.e. the fact that most females are women and most males are men needs to be explained. This paper provides a constructivist theory of sex, which is that the sex categories depend on norms of reproduction. I argue that, because the sex categories are defined according to the two functions or causal roles in reproduction, and biological functionis a teleological concept involving purposes, goals, and values, female and male are normative categories. As there are no norms or values in nature, normative categories are social constructions; hence, female and male are not natural but social categories. Once we understand that biological normativity is social, biological norms of heterosexuality, fertility, and so on are no longer incontestable. In addition, as many gender norms also concern reproduction - socially mediated reproduction - this simple theory of sex explains the common confluence of sex and gender.

Abstract [en]

In the Treatise, Hume writes several seemingly incompatible things about the moral sentiments, thus there is no general agreement about where they fit within his taxonomy of the perceptions. Some passages speak in favor of the view that moral sentiments are indirect passions, a few infavor of the view that they are direct passions, and yet a couple of explicit statements strongly suggest otherwise. Due to these tensions in Hume's text, we find at least five competing characterizations in the literature:

  • Moral sentiments are calm emotions.
  • Moral sentiments are calm direct passions.
  • Moral sentiments are calm versions of the indirect passions of love or hatred.
  • Moral sentiments are unique species of calm indirect passions.
  • Moral sentiments are indirect secondary impressions.

This paper assesses each of these interpretations. When their virtues are brought together, a new interpretation of the origin of moral sentiments starts to emerge.
