    Introduction: Two Stories of the Arts and Humanities – and a Third Version Emerging2016In: Akademisk Kvarter, ISSN 1904-0008, E-ISSN 1904-0008, Vol. 13, no 10, 4-13 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the past few decades, the arts and humanities in the West- ern world have been challenged by a strange contradiction between two very different stories about their raison d’être and value. The first story focuses on the expansion of universities, including the faculties of arts and humanities. The second story is dominated by a feeling of distress prompted by the constant questioning of the usefulness and applicability of the arts and humanities. As the con- tributions to this volume of Academic Quarter indicate, however, a third story may be about to emerge.

    Positivism med mänskligt ansikte* Montessoripedagogikens idéhistoriska grunder2006In: Locus* Tidskrift för forskning om barn och ungdomar, ISSN 1100-3197, no 2, 51-57 p.Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sedan 1920-talet har det funnits montessoriskolor i vårt land och dessa har under tidens gång influerat såväl förskolans som grundskolan utveckling. Den första skrift som behandlar pedagogiken på svenska kom ut redan 1923 och utlöste då en livlig debatt. Därefter har det varit tunt med publikationer om pedagogiken på vårt språk. Det är därför glädjande att Christine Quarfoods bok Positivism med mänskligt ansikte har publicerats dock ifrågasätter recensenterna författarens underliggande tes.

    På spaning efter en svensk modell: Idéer och vägval i arbetsgivarpolitiken 1897-19092011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The period saw the founding of the first Swedish employers´ associations as a reaction to the preceding decades´ growth of industrial trade unions. Conflicting ideas fought about supremacy. Not only was the fight carried out across the social dividing line separating workers from the bourgeoisie, but also between groups on either side: hawks versus doves among employers; revolutionaries versus reformers among workers.

    The study uses an actor perspective, comparing three leading industrialists in their particular roles as employers. It analyzes the development of ideas over the period studied, using minutes from meetings, company memos, letters, speeches and newspapers as primary sources. In addition, it is action-orientated and analyzes major labour conflicts that were fought and agreements that were reached. It applies a split vision, taking into regard the contemporary views and actions of the labour unions. Its perspective moves between the individual, the company and the organizational levels, with the primary aim to see what changes in the traditional patriarchal employer policies that were considered and to what extent such changes were realized.

    A major result is the evidence of the irreconcilable views on the subject of strike breakers/loyal workers -- two conflicting terms for one phenomenon that indicate a gap between two different sets of values. Differing views among employers on how to relate to this gap caused frictions in the years 1906-09. The outcome of the general strike in 1909 ended in a harsh employer organizations policy for more than the two following decades. It was replaced by the mutual spirit, later known as the Swedish Model, materialized in the Saltsjöbaden general agreements of 1938.

    It's A Good Life, If You're Free from Sin: The Moral and Political Sense of Chivalry in Medieval Castile2014In: Roda da Fortuna: Revista Eletrônica sobre Antiguidade e Medievo, ISSN 2014-7430, Vol. 3, no 2, 148-169 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the manner in which the virtues and vices play a part in the representation of the social order in the work of Don Juan Manuel, with a particular emphasis on the Libro del cauallero et del escudero, and in reference to the configuration of chivalry in Alfonso X’s Siete partidas (2P, Title XXI) and Ramon Llull’s Llibre de l’orde de cavalleria. I discuss how Don Juan Manuel’s representation of knighthood and chivalry differs from that of his predecessors, the moral and ethical notions inherent therein, and its relation to conceptions of social order. The discussion concerns the motivations and aims of these diverging conceptions of chivalry and how they are legitimated and justified.

    A Fractured Position in a Stable Partnership: Ebba Hult, Gerard De Geer, and Early Twentieth Century Swedish Geology2014In: Science in Context, ISSN 0269-8897, E-ISSN 1474-0664, Vol. 27, no 3, 423-451 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the scientific partnership between geology professor Gerard De Geer and his wife Ebba Hult following their marriage in 1908. De Geer was an influential participant in Swedish academia and international geology. Hult worked as his assistant until his death in 1943. The partnership was beneficial for both spouses, in particular through the semi-private Geochronological Institute, which they controlled. The article argues that marriage was a culturally acknowledged form of collaboration in the academic community, and as such it offered Hult access to geological research. However, the paper also argues that the gendered scientific institutions produced a fractured position. Partly, Hult managed to create her own role as researcher in geochronology. As a woman and a wife, however, she never moved out of her husband's shadow. Gender is understood as a relational category: Hult was an outsider who participated partially in standardized structures which gave great power to her husband and other men. The fact that she shared this status with other women in Swedish science at the time indicates the structural nature of their position. Nevertheless, they all had individual trajectories through academia. Indeed, the study of collaborative couples illustrates the multifaceted links between individual actions and the historical context of science.

    An Assemblage of Science and Home The Gendered Lifestyle of Svante Arrhenius and Early Twentieth-Century Physical Chemistry2014In: Isis (Chicago, Ill.), ISSN 0021-1753, E-ISSN 1545-6994, Vol. 105, no 2, 265-291 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay explores the gendered lifestyle of early twentieth-century physics and chemistry and shows how that way of life was produced through linking science and home. In 1905, the Swedish physical chemist Svante Arrhenius married Maja Johansson and established a scientific household at the Nobel Institute for Physical Chemistry in Stockholm. He created a productive context for research in which ideas about marriage and family were pivotal. He also socialized in similar scientific sites abroad. This essay displays how scholars in the international community circulated the gendered lifestyle through frequent travel and by reproducing gendered behavior. Everywhere, husbands and wives were expected to perform distinct duties. Shared performances created loyalties across national divides. The essay thus situates the physical sciences at the turn of the twentieth century in a bourgeois gender ideology. Moreover, it argues that the gendered lifestyle was not external to knowledge making but, rather, foundational to laboratory life. A legitimate and culturally intelligible lifestyle produced the trust and support needed for collaboration. In addition, it enabled access to prestigious facilities for Svante Arrhenius, ultimately securing his position in international physical chemistry.

    Natural selection and multiple realisation: A closer look2013In: International Studies in the Philosophy of Science, ISSN 0269-8595, E-ISSN 1469-9281, I, Vol. 27, no 1, 73-83 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The target of this paper is the claim that natural selection accounts for the multiple realisation of biological and psychological kinds. I argue that the explanation actually offered doesn’t provide any insight about the phenomenon since it presupposes multiple realisation as an unexplained premise, and this is what does all the work. The purported explanation mistakenly invokes the “indifference” of selection to structure as an additional explanatorily relevant factor. While such indifference can be explanatory in intentional contexts it isn’t a causal factor at all in non-intentional nature. The upshot is that once the necessary initial assumption about heterogeneity is accepted there is no further explanation to do.

    Politik i sak: C.J.L. Almqvists samhällstänkande 1839-18512005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis concerns the political ideas of the Swedish author, journalist and thinker Carl Jonas Love Almqvist (1793–1866). The main source material consists of his theoretical works and the slightly more than 700 articles that he wrote for newspapers such as Aftonbladet and Jönköpingsbladet between 1839 and 1851. The study consists of an introduction and ten chapters dealing with various aspects of Almqvist’s political thinking, among them his view of man, history, religion and educational policy as well as his commitment to the Scandinavist movement and his standpoint in the question of the Swedish representative system.

    The dissertation shows that Almqvist had well-reasoned ideas in all these areas and that he argued from a liberal point of view throughout. He was a political reformist who emphasized individualism, freedom and tolerance. He also had confidence in man’s ability to decide his own destiny and a negative attitude towards the old privilege society and all kinds of institutions regarded as irrational. In addition, he believed that society becomes more and more democratic and that in the long run all adults, even women, servants and unpropertied, should become citizens with political rights, even if it was still not time for a truly democratic system. So even if Almqvist had an ideal of a consistent democracy with universal suffrage, he did not consider the society of his day to be ready for such a reform. First, the people have to raise their level of political awareness and learn what a democratic form of government really implies. In that process the educational system, the press and political associations may have an important function.

    Almqvist always tried to combine his utopian visions with concrete reform proposals. He did not only dream of a utopian society; he also tried to show some possible paths towards attaining that society. Besides the utopian feature in his political thinking, there is an unmistakable striving after concreteness and a desire to exert an influence on the contemporary society.

    Abstract [en]

    In the fall of 1897, in Sweden, Strindberg was publicly accused of having plagiarized Huysmans. This article strives to investigate the case by studying the biographical sources and the religious ideas expressed in the novels Inferno (1897), Legends (1898) and En Route (1895), and by recontextualizing both writers’ works in the fin de siècle mysticism period. Thanks to an intertextual approach, we examine different points where Strindberg and Huysmans meet, as far as their religious imaginary is concerned, namely, the notions of divine compassion and redemptive suffering.

    A Divine King Excommunicated: Legitimisation of Power and Ideology of Kingship in Sverris Saga

    This article investigates how Sverrir Sigurðarson, ruler of Norway between 1177 and 1202, is ideologically legitimised as king in the biography Sverris saga. In previous research, the perception that Sverrir is portrayed as a Christian rex iustus has competed with the perception that Sverrir is depicted as a traditional Old Norse warrior king, who gains his legitimacy through his military successes. This article demonstrates that the rex iustus idea is central in the saga when it comes to legitimising Sverrir, and that his seizure of power is also placed in the salvation-historical worldview of the time. Fully in accordance with the way contemporary continental European kings legitimised their claims to power, Sverrir’s royal power is justified in the saga through a combination of the notion that God has chosen Sverrir as king and the notion of a line of succession to the throne through paternal blood ties. The article also demonstrates that the saga, like the polemic pamphlet A Speech against the Bishops (Ett tal mot biskoparna), propagates against the perception that the Church is above the royal power and dismisses the Church’s excommunication of Sverrir as unjust and invalid.

    Abstract [sv]

    I det traditionella norröna samhället var en god kung detsamma som en framgångsrik kung. Det var framgången som legitimerade rätten till tronen. När kungamakten institutionaliserades förändrades kraven som ställdes på kungen. En religiös legitimitet för maktutövningen blev nödvändig, representerad i den rex iustus-doktrin som gjorde sitt intåg genom integrationen med det kristna Europa.

    Sverrir Sigurðarson († 1202) gjorde anspråk på den norska kronan under vad som måste betecknas som övergångsskedet mellan den gamla och nya kungaideologin. Den nästan samtida biografin över honom, Sverris saga, ger ett unikt porträtt av ett medeltida härskarliv, som möjliggör en analys av den ideologi som hans maktanspråk legitimeras genom. Sverre Bagge har i sin tongivande forskning menat att sagan legitimerar Sverrir genom hans framgångar på slagfältet. Med andra ord menar Bagge att sagan präglas av främst traditionell norrön kungaideologi. I mitt paper kommer jag att diskutera den uppfattningen med utgångspunkt från att forskare som Aron J. Gurevich, Ludvig Holm-Olsen, Halvdan Koht och Gerhard Loescher inte har delat Bagges uppfattning, utan istället framhållit den religiösa retorikens betydelse för legitimitetsskapandet.

    Ideologin i Sverris saga uttalas sällan direkt, utan måste istället sökas såväl i dialoger, tal och drömmar som i beskrivningen av kungen och hans handlande. Jag syftar i mitt paper till att utreda och åtskilja vilka element i Sverris saga som bör kopplas till ett traditionellt norrönt kungaideal, respektive vilka som bör kopplas till rex iustus-doktrinen. På det viset vill jag kunna nå ett steg längre än i tidigare forskning när det gäller att fastslå i vilken utsträckning de bägge kungaideologierna finns företrädda i sagan. En sak som jag vill lägga särskild vikt vid är om sätten, som Sverrirs rätt till tronen legitimeras på i sagan, förändras sedan han har blivit bannlyst av påven.

    Abstract [en]

    In the mid-nineteenth century, the ancient notion that genius is a form of insanity suddenly became the topic of intense medical interest. Beginning with the French physician Lélut’s 1836 study of Socrates, Du démon de Socrate, a number of prominent nineteenth century doctors developed theories that sought to explain genius with reference to various medical conditions. The most important and controversial of these theories was Cesare Lombroso’s attempt in L’uomo di genio (1888) to show that genius, just like the innate tendency to commit crime that he claimed to observe in the majority of the criminals, was a form of masked epilepsy. Lombroso’s opponents, in particular the followers of the French Lyon school, developed an alternative theory according to which genius was a higher form of reason and a future, more highly developed form of human appearing in advance. The paper seeks to demonstrate that the medical theories of genius were in fact an important scientific topic in the late nineteenth century. It aims to show that Lombroso’s notion that genius was a positive counterpart to the born criminal, whose intuitive insights can be put to use by science and solve the very problems that the born criminal causes, meant that the theories on genius were in fact an aspect of criminal anthropology that was much more important than the previous research has noted.

    Abstract [en]

    Anthropologists in the world of insects; Swedish entomology 1880-1920

    Karin Dirke

    My contribution will focus on how the scientific and popular view of animals was formed primarily in Swedish entomology and to show how this view is related to the perception of society.

    I will discuss a certain historical period; between the breakthrough of Darwinism and the work of the great names in ethology such as Niko Tinbergen and Konrad Lorenz. The context is the study of animal behaviour, and the popularization of such studies, in entomology. Anthropomorphism played an important part in this context in several ways. It was of course necessary in the popularization of entomology, which was surprisingly widespread at the time. It also points towards a change of interest in entomology itself. Previously entomology was primarily concerned with the Linnaean categorization of insects. However at the end of the nineteenth century the entomologists were increasingly interested in the behaviour of insects. In fact at the end of the century the behaviour of insects was better understood than the behaviour of mammals. The interest in insects was both popular and learned. The likeness of humans and (social) insects also became a strategic argument for Darwinism.

    Animals seem untouched by human social categories such as gender, class or race yet the descriptions of animals to a great extent reproduce the categories. Therefore the study of anthropomorphism is central. Our language is built on the notion of a relationship with the non-human through continuous comparison. In recent years, in the wake of postmodernism, anthropomorphism as a cultural phenomenon has begun to evoke interest among scholars.

    Since Francis Bacon’s days anthropomorphism has been understood as a scientific flaw and as a misguided judgement. To anthropomorphize has been to wrongly ascribe human traits to something nonhuman. Yet the notion that anthropomorphism is wrong is in itself a statement about what is human and what is not. This paradox is an integral part of the history of anthropomorphism however it is rarely considered. The boundaries of humanity have seldom been questioned in this way.

    This makes anthropomorphism important in connection with the breakthrough of Darwinism in the second half of the nineteenth century. When the boundaries of humanity were no longer self-evident the attitude towards animals and anthropomorphism changed. This aspect of the history of anthropomorphism has been noted in recent studies.

    Anthropomorphism is highly interesting to study in relation to the growth of the study of animal behaviour as a scientific discipline. It is not seriously questioned until the breakthrough of behaviourism in the early twentieth century. At the same time Darwin’s anecdotal and anthropomorphic language of science is an evident point of departure. At this point the use of anthropomorphism in entomology becomes interesting. What does it say in relation to Darwinism? What do the entomologists have to say about categories such as gender, class and race? How do they relate to concepts like society, war and gender concerning insect-societies? What does this tell us about the view of humanity?
