    Perceptions of death among children in Sweden2019In: International Journal of Children's Spirituality, ISSN 1364-436X, E-ISSN 1469-8455, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 415-433Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses children’s thoughts about death. Research was carried out in two elementary schools in Sweden among 40 children between 6 and 9 years of age, data were collected through text reading, movie viewing and dialogues with children. The main results reveal child-specific thoughts about the end of life, i.e., ideas children construe on their own. The findings also show society- and time-specific thoughts that children take from their societal and cultural context. The article proposes an integrative approach between these two: it is only when the categories of child-specific and society- and time-specific thoughts are combined that we get a fair picture of children’s perceptions of death. The main finding is that children form ideas of their own; they are not completely under the influence of their societal and cultural context. Children take over ideas from their surrounding society but they also express ideas produced by themselves.

    Människan i en existentiell kultur: en antologi om Människa-Kultur-Religionsprogrammet vid Högskolan i Gävle2021Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna antologi har kandidatprogrammet Människa-kultur-religionsprogrammet (MKR) vid den religionsvetenskapliga ämnesavdelningen vid Högskolan i Gävle som gemensam nämnare och övergripande tema. Programmet har en unik sammansättning kurser som bara finns i Gävle och har i en undersökning pekats ut som det mest populära kandidatprogrammet i religionsvetenskap i landet. Programmet ger en förståelse för olika religioner, livssyner och kulturella bakgrunder, och ger därmed studenten en särskild kompetens att arbeta med komplexa kulturmötesfrågor. Det ger därutöver studenten en speciell förståelse för de existentiella frågor som individen ställs inför i livets olika skeden.

    Programmet svarar mot regionala såväl som nationella utbildningsbehov och tar sig an många och viktiga samtida och framtida samhällsutmaningar. Social, kulturell och existentiell hållbarhet är fenomen som kommer att framstå som allt viktigare ju mer mångfaldigt och komplext samhället blir och utgör centrala teman inom MKR-programmet.

    Antologin är tänkt att användas som undervisningsmaterial för studenter som går programmet. Förhoppningen är emellertid att boken även ska intressera en större läsekrets, däribland representanter för möjliga framtida arbetsplatser för våra studenter, men även andra.

    Bokens kapitel är skrivna av lärare och tidigare studenter knutna till Ämnesavdelningen för religionsvetenskap.

    Templet på bokens omslag ligger i anslutning till Frasassigrottorna nära staden Genga i regionen Marche i östra Italien. Det uppfördes 1828 på initiativ av påve Leo XII och kallas Valadiertemplet efter arkitekten Giuseppe Valadier, känd för sina byggnader i neoklassisk stil. Templet rymmer en staty av madonnan och barnet. En av benämningarna för Jungfru Maria är refugium peccatorum och därför är templet även känt som ”syndarnas tillflykt” och har varit en plats dit pilgrimer sökt sig för förlåtelse.

    Conformity, totalitarian trends, and totalitarianism: Threaths to democracy in local/global community2022In: International Yearbook for Tillich Research: Liminal Spaces and Ethical Challenges / [ed] Christian Danz, Marc Dumas, Werner Schüssler & Bryan Wagoner, Berlin: Walter de Gruyter, 2022, p. 67-92Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The essay discusses the state of democracy in today's world, paying attention to conformity, totalitarian trends, and totalitarianism as threats to democracy. One of the main arguments is that conformism and totalitarian trends as such do not yet equal to totalitarianism, but external conformism and the concentration of power in the hands of some groups might offer a trajectory bound to totalitarianism. A holistic three level model differentiating between representation, structure, and drive is construed both a means of showing what is going on and as a means of finding a cure. The model is inspired by a monistic turn in the middle of the previous century. Eino Kaila, Arthur Koestler, and Paul Tillich are identified as central figures in that turn. What is common for them is that they started to anchor thought in life, seeing life as a unity. The article concludes with a discussion of re-establishing the center of personality as a way of counteracting totalitarian tendencies.

    Differential Thinking and New Aesthetics: Potentialization, Essentialization, and Art2011In: Bulletin of The North American Paul Tillich Society, Vol. 37, no 2, p. 15-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Schelling there is an interaction between thinking (activity) and feeling or sensing(receptivity), making up the elements of differential thinking. Tillich’s aesthetics and essentialization might be understood in the light of the differential view. The first part of the paper discusses Tillich’sessentialization in the light of the differential thinking and in relation to Schelling’s potentialization. The second part of the paper discusses the conception of the synthesis ofpersonality in Tillich and in Kierkegaard and its expressions in recent new aesthetics.The synthesis of personality is central in essentialization: the synthesis is formed in the interplay between positive and negative elements; synthesis is truth done. The paper also discusses art as "truth done" and it lifts up examples in contemporary art in which the synthesis of personality and the expressiveness of ethics and truth are explicated.

    Differential thinking and the possibility of faith-knowledge: Tillich and Kierkegaard between negative and positive philosophy2012In: Bulletin of The North American Paul Tillich Society, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 2-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses both Tillich and Kierkegaard in the perspective of differential thinking. Differential thinking, initiated by Schelling, is not build on the binary opposition between sensing and thinking, but sensing belongs to thinking and vice versa. The development of subjectivity in Kierkegaard is expressed in that how the individual senses his or her existence (how-truth). The how-truths are differentiated from the what-truths of modern scientific knowledge. What-truths are objective representations; how-truths express the sensed. The paper discusses also the difference between negative and positive philosophy in religious knowledge. Both Tillich and Kierkegaard seem to follow Schelling in differentiating between the two. The negative philosophy, based on radical doubt, takes the possibility of objective knowledge of God away. The positive philosophy both in Tillich and in Kierkegaard opens up for the metaphorical and the symbolic. The metaphorical expresses the sensed; religious knowledge speaks the language of how-truths.

    Positioner, övergångar och förvandlingar2021In: Människan i en existentiell kultur: En antologi om Människa-Kultur-Religionsprogrammet vid Högskolan i Gävle / [ed] Olov Dahlin, Sara Duppils, Jari Ristiniemi, Gävle: Gävle University Press , 2021, p. 130-146Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur blir jag den person jag vill vara? Frågan kan vara utgångspunkten för en lärprocess där medvetenhet om potential (andlighet) gör sig tillkänna. Bara detta ’att göra sig till känna’ visar att det inte är positionen av ’jag tänker och föreställer’ som är utgångspunkten eller bestämmande utan någonting händer med en, kanske en förvandling. Positionen ’jag tänker och föreställer’ är, som den uppfattas här, samstämmig med dualism. Den här artikeln betraktar dualismen som en kulturkategori eller som kulturell förståelseform central för den västerländska kulturen. Dualismen betraktas vidare som övergångsstadium, det finns vägar bortom både epistemologisk och ontologisk dualism. Förvandlig i sin tur handlar om att någonting händer i och för en i samband med medvetandets uppvaknade, en kvalitativ förändring. Övergången går från en jag- och reflektionscentrerad position till ny-materialitet där individualitet ses som en aspekt i tillvarons pluralitet.

    The art of learning and art in learning: difference between informative and integral learning2011In: The New Student: as a Didactic Challange / [ed] Jari Ristiniemi och Olof Sundqvist, Uppsala: Swedish Science Press , 2011, , p. 190p. 42-67Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The essay “The art of learning and art in learning; difference between informative and integral learning” makes a difference between the level of representations and the dimension of structural possibilities. Informative learning, he claims, moves on the level of representations, whereas integral learning focuses on those structures and drives that shape the representations; the dimension of structural possibilities precedes the level of representations and structures it. Traditionally teaching and learning have made use of informative learning or, to use Freirer’s words, the banking education. The integral learning deals with the structural capacities of the mind, as they come to expression in the shaping of one’s world-view. Art, it is argued, expresses the first-forms of the mind-world or the self-world interaction; art is essential to learning.

    The interaction of religion and culture as a basis for religious education in early childhood education: An integrative/integral approach2022In: The Routledge International Handbook of the Place of Religion in Early Childhood Education and Care / [ed] Arniika Kuusisto, London: Routledge, 2022, p. 34-46Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter outlines interaction between religion and culture. An integrative and integral approach is presented in an attempt to show how historical phenomena, such as cultural forms, patterns of understanding, societal changes and technology, contribute to human self-understanding and the interpretation of religion. How culture shapes self-understanding and religion is discussed in terms of coordinates like centre and periphery and individual and collective. An alternative to an anthropocentric understanding of values is presented in which each thing has its own value. The plural theory of values is combined with a holistic, new materiality perspective. This perspective sees the spirit/matter unity, or the potentiality in the materiality of things, and the sensing body as essential to religious education in early childhood education.

    The Unity of Life and the Kingdom of God: Interdependence and Interaction between Individuals, Natures, and the Ground of Being in Paul Tillich’s Eschatology2015In: International Yearbook for Tillich Research, ISSN 1990-4231, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 81-102Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decade of his life, Tillich saw the possibility of constructing ethics and theology from below in his multidimensional view of the unity of life. His view brings together the late Plato and Aristotle: essences are potentials which the historical process actualizes and enriches both for all beings and for God as the ground of being. In his eschatology, his differential monism avoids the problems of strict teleological finalism and of a dualism between living beings and God. For Tillich, there is no unbridgeable gap between immanence and transcendence but a mutual bond of connection, interdependence and interaction. In love, the positive in creation and in history is brought into the Kingdom of God and fulfills justice for all beings.

    Where to and why? Children on meaning and value in a new materiality perspective2021In: International Journal of Children's Spirituality, ISSN 1364-436X, E-ISSN 1469-8455, Vol. 26, no 1-2, p. 44-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present article is to discuss what children regard as important in life and how they view the purpose of life. We proceed from a new materiality perspective. The results are based on a study conducted in Sweden among 40 6- to 9-year-old children in two different classes in two elementary schools. A qualitative data-collection method was used involving text reading and movie viewing. In the present article, we begin with a theoretical discussion of the new materiality perspective before presenting our results. The findings show that children perceive togetherness, kindness, fairness and freedom as basic values for their own part and that they consider wealth and family to be basic societal values. There is a value differentiation going on in children’s thinking, a result of which is that some values step out as basic values for children. A map of values is construed that aims to explicate children’s value orientation.

    Challenging Life: Existential Questions as a Resource for Education2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an increasing recognition today that young people need to have knowledge about religions and world views in order to live and work in diverse societies. What kind of ‘maps’ are they provided with through religious, values and ethics education? Does education address the challenging existential questions that children and adolescents ask about life and the world? This volume addresses different aspects of how existential questions have been dealt with in educational research. It especially draws attention to the Swedish research tradition of focusing on life questions and the interpretation of life in education, but with contemporary international research added. It also addresses issues of ethics education and discusses possible options for the future of existential questions as a resource for education.
