  2. 2. becoming things, becoming-world : On Cosmopolitanism, Reification and Education

    Författare :Claudia Schumann; Klas Roth; Niclas Rönnström; Paul Standish; David Hansen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; cosmopolitanism; reification; globalization; education; philosophy; educational theory; critical pedagogy; particularism; universalism; objectivity; Critical Theory; New Wittgensteinianism; György Lukács; Gerard Delanty; Axel Honneth; Alice Crary; pedagogik; Education;

    Sammanfattning : What if education were not about becoming something, making something of yourself, becoming some thing? What if we were to consider education as becoming-world? These questions are posed against the background of the current populist nationalist backlash against the consequences of globalization, along with growing anti-intellectualism and anti-democratic sentiment. How can education contribute locally and globally to fostering and safeguarding the very possibility of democratic practices against the neoliberal consecration of reified social relations? Becoming Things, Becoming-world contributes to contemporary discussions in philosophy of education by developing a vision of a critical educational cosmopolitanism founded upon a renewed critique of reification.

  3. 3. A theory of the emotional self : from the standpoint of a neo-Meadian

    Författare :Emma Engdahl; Lars-Erik Berg; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; self-formation; self-realization; emotion; social behavior; social interaction; attitude taking; social psychology; the sociology of emotions; A. Smith; C. H. Cooley; G. H. Mead; sociologi; Sociology; Sociologi; Sociologi; Sociology;

    Sammanfattning : In this dissertation, two fundamental questions are posed: (1) what is emotion, and (2) what part does it play in the social processes of self-formation and self-realization? How do we as behaving beings, who experience sensations, become interacting beings, who experience emotions? And, how are our emotional experiences related to who we are and our ability to acquire a positive relation to ourselves? By attempting to answer these questions I point out the social conditions that are necessary to enable emotional experiences, and in turn self-formation and self-realization. The focus is on the form, rather than on the content of the emotional self. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Some Aspects of Non-Perturbative Quantum Field Theory

    Författare :Joakim Hallin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Yang-Mills; QED; pair production; density matrix; external field; Schwinger model; gauge invariant; functional representation;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis is to describe some different ways in which non-perturbative methods enter in quantum field theory. In the thesis such methods enter in 1+1-dimensional theories: various Yang-Mills theories and electrodynamics. It also enters when treating charged bosons or fermions interacting with an external, classical field. LÄS MER
