    Sverige inte så sekulariserat som vi tror: David Thurfjell, Det gudlösa folket: De postkristna svenskarna och religionen2015In: Respons : recensionstidskrift för humaniora & samhällsvetenskap, ISSN 2001-2292, no 4Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kyrkan spelar en mindre roll i Sverige än tidigare, men det innebär enligt David Thurfjell inte att svenskarna har blivit mindre troende. Religiösa tänkesätt har mer omvandlats än försvunnit. Argumentationen för detta är övertygande men när det gäller sekulariseringen underskattar Thurfjell betydelsen av den så kallade livstron, som var ett försök att skapa alternativ till kristendomen.

    A hero's many faces: Raoul Wallenberg in contemporary monuments2009Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Raoul Wallenberg is widely remembered for his humanitarian activity on behalf of the Hungarian Jews in Budapest at the end of World War II, and known as the Swedish diplomat who disappeared into the Soviet Gulag in 1945. Today, Wallenberg’s example is used to communicate humanitarian values and human rights in many democratic societies. His story incorporates a classical hero narrative which has survived the ‘un-heroic’ 20th century.In 2008, there exist thirty-one Wallenberg monuments in twelve countries on five continents, from Hungary to Sweden, from Canada to Chile, from Australia to Russia. The rich diversity of the monuments invites to discuss the different concepts of Wallenberg and heroism as expressed in the artists’ works. The art-historical focus of this interdisciplinary study makes it a valuable contribution to the discussion of personal monuments, as well as to the socio-historical research on the commemoration of Wallenberg and the concept of the hero.

    Kyrkan och den tidigmoderna staten: en konflikt om Aristoteles, utbildning och makt2010Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur och när blev den moderna staten till? Säkert är att det skedde under tidigmodern tid, alltså främst under 1500- och 1600-talen. En av många frågor gäller den roll kyrkan spelade i denna process. Vi vet hur viktig bekännelsen var inte bara religiöst utan också politiskt. Det ledde i Sverige till sådana frågor som var gränsen skulle gå mellan regeringens och prästerskapets inflytande över kyrkan och över utbildningen. I början av 1600-talet ville en av Sveriges mest inflytelserika biskopar att den hedniska etiken skulle förbjudas i skolorna. Aristoteles kunde vara farlig för en god kristen. Professorn i etik svarade och hävdade att teologin och kyrkan behövde hela filosofin. Vad menade biskopen och varför kastade han fram detta förslag just då? Stort utrymme ägnas åt båda sidors argumentation och den roll den aristoteliska traditionen och skolastiken spelade efter reformationen. För att förstå konflikten relateras debatten också till den inrikespolitiska situationen i början av 1600-talet i  Sverige som då var i inledningen av statsbildningsprocessen.

    Fysikens filosofi: Diskussioner om Einstein, relativitetsteorin och kvantfysiken i Sverige 1910-19701999Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation focuses on the reception of the Theory of Relativity and the Quantum Mechanics outside the field of physics, especially in the philosophical community. In the Swedish context, the study shows how the ideas and discussions about these theories belonged to different types of discourses, some existing long before the arrival of modern physics, some shortlived, and some surviving the earliest reception. In connection with this point of view, the thesis argues that the ideas about relativity and quantum physics must be understood not only as expressions of some individuals’ more or less adequate knowledge, but also as expressions of different thought-styles. One such thought-style was formed in Uppsala, where some philosophers strongly opposed both the relativity of the new physical space and time concepts and the ’uncertainty’ of quantum mechanics. The reason for this is shown to have been the philosophers’ inherited belief in an unambiguous and rational world-order beyond the subjectivism of empirical knowledge.

    The investigation covers a long period of time and, in many ways, it indicates that the attitudes toward modern physics became more positive. The anti-Einstein campaign of the early 1920s was silenced by the increased public admiration of theoretical physicists in general and of Albert Einstein in particular. The initial naïveté in the interpretations of the new physical theories was gradually replaced by an awareness of the fact that it was a task for professionals only. The earlier philosophical interpretations were criticized. During the 1930s, the Uppsala philosophers were attacked both by members of the Vienna Circle and by some Swedish scientists. In the end, Swedish philosophy became orienteted towards the logical empiricism of the Western hemisphere, and the notion that there were some fundamental faults committed in modern physics was abandoned. Only a few persons outside the academic world maintained this opinion untill the 1970s.

    The Sound of the Rain Needs no Translation: Synen på samhället och den moderna människan hos Alan Watts2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1940s, 50s and 60s the two youth movements of the beats and the hippies emerged in the United States. Disagreeing with the progressive positivism of the previous generations these youths were part of a counter culture that adhered to an ideal of living in the present.

    Alan Wilson Watts (1915–1973), most known for his popularization of eastern philosophy and religion in general and Zen-Buddhism in particular, became one of the most influential and well-read advocates of the new movements. Drawing upon eastern philosophy and religion as well as modern psychology, Watts challenged the western world view by rejecting the dualism of self and environment, arguing that man is one with God and nature and claiming that nothing exists but the present experience here and now.

    Based on Watts’ view of man and reality, and in the context of the emerging youth movements, this study examines Watts’ criticism of western culture and society as well as his view on happiness and the possibility of a better life for the individual living in the west.

    The study shows that, according to Watts, the root of the problem facing western society lies in man’s incapability of distinguishing concept from reality, preferring abstract ideas and symbols to the experience present in everyday life. As a result, man perceives himself as separate from nature, waging war on his environment in a futile attempt at finding happiness by constantly striving for ever greater achievements of which the main goal always seems to lie somewhere in the future but never in the present. His ideas inspired the youth movements, although they moved in a different direction than the one he would have wanted.

    Watts, suggesting that an altered understanding of oneself as one with the universe is central in maintaining a thriving society in union with nature, claims that the essence of happiness consists of this understanding here in the present rather than the pursuit and obtaining of a desired goal.

    Den kvantandliga diskursen: En undersökning av nyandlighetens möte med kvantfysiken2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to describe and elaborate on a recent discursive change within the new-age movement. Since the seventies and the publishing of speculative popular science books like The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra and The self-aware Universe by Amit Goswami, the idea that quantum physics resonates with spirituality has become the topic of hundreds of books and movies.

    The quantum-spiritual discourse has three distinct ways to approach quantum physics in its discussion on spirituality: The parallelistic approach which emphasizes the similarities between eastern philosophies and modern physics, the monistic-idealistic approach which tells us that mind is the foundation of matter and the scientific spiritual approach which tries to explain spiritual claims scientifically. In the quantum-spiritual discourse, quantum physical phenomena (e.g. non-locality and entanglement) are being called upon to validate metaphysical statements. The primary assumption of the discourse is that the shift of paradigm due to the establishment of modern physics also is a shift of paradigm of spirituality.

    With the object to examine the common claims made in the discourse, cross-references between spiritual arguments and facts of quantum physics are being made. A discussion is held about the probable influence of the historical context, with particular focus on the monistic evolvement during the late nineteenth century.

    No alternatives: The end of ideology in the 1950s and the post-political world of the 1990s2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1950s, scholars in Europe and the United States announced the end of political ideology in the West. With the rise of affluent welfare states, they argued, ideological movements which sought to overthrow prevailing liberal democracy would disappear. While these arguments were questioned in the 1960s, similar ideas were presented after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Scholars now claimed that the end of the Cold War meant the end of mankind’s “ideological development,” that globalization would undermine the left/right distinction and that politics would be shaped by cultural affiliations rather than ideological alignments.

    The purpose of No alternatives is to compare the end of ideology discussion of the 1950s with some of the post-Cold War theories launched at the time of, or in the years following, the fall of the Berlin Wall. Juxtaposing monographs, essays and papers between 1950 and 2000, the dissertation focuses on three aspects of these theories. First, it analyzes their concepts of history, demonstrating that they tended to portray the existing society as an order which had resolved the conflicts and antagonisms of earlier history. Second, the investigation scrutinizes the processes of post-politicization at work in these theories, showing how they sought to transcend, contain or externalize social conflict, and at times dismiss politics altogether. Third, it demonstrates how the theories can be understood as legitimizing or mobilizing narratives which aimed to defend Western liberal democracy and to rally its citizens against internal threats and external enemies. As the title of the dissertation implies, the end of ideology discussion of the 1950s and the post-Cold War theories of the 1990s sought to highlight the historical or political impossibility of any alternatives to the present society.

    Kulturen och arbetarrörelsen: Kulturpolitiska strävanden från August Palm till Tage Erlander2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis comprises studies on a theme. The theme is cultural political ambitions in the Swedish labour movement from August Palm to Tage Erlander, from the first tentative steps of popular education at the end of the 19th century to the first cultural political programmes fifty years later. In the analyses of the various source material a dominant perspective has been opposition or conflict between high and low, elite and mass, fine culture and popular culture.

    What is striking is how political parties from the right to the left were often able to arrive at a political consensus on culture and education. In the building of a nation, the bourgeoisie and the labour movement both saw culture as having a class-bridging and socially cohesive function. The decisive conflict in the area of culture and cultural policy has been between the elite and the masses, between often academically educated leaders and their members and voters. Accordingly, the Social democrat Oscar Olsson and the right-wing Valfrid Palmgren together created the corporate solution that paved the way for an explosion of study circles and that would become a model for Swedish cultural policy. Challenging alternatives to the established popular education movement were posed by the weekly magazine Såningsmannen with its utilitarian view of literature and the class-struggle education that in the revolutionary years around 1920 was formed within the SSV/SKP.

    The first cultural political programmes that were presented after the war, namely the Communist “Democratic cultural programme” (1946/48) and the Social Democratic “Man and the present” (1952), heralded a completely new historical situation, in which culture and education no longer formed a self-evident unit.

    Visions of Transnational Memory2011In: Journal of Aesthetics and Culture, ISSN 2000-4214, E-ISSN 2000-4214, Vol. 3, p. 1-5Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper is a short introduction to the ‘‘global turn’’ in memory studies and to transnational memory in particular. Both culturalist and normative positions are presented. After the conceptual overview, there follows an analysis of two films, Auf der anderen Seite (2007) and Cache´ (2005), with special focus on the two notions ‘‘translocal’’ and ‘‘inclusive distinction’’, and on the theme of an ethics and morality of memory. This is in order to explicate the usefulness and importance of the notion of transnational memory. Finally, the concluding remark is made that research into transnational memory is significant due to its recognising of small-scale trajectories and memory practices beyond the framework of the nation, and because of the subtle dialectics between an ethics and morality of memory - thus leading to a persistent ‘‘transnational monitoring’’ of the national as well.

    This article introduces this special issue of Qualitative Inquiry focused on using concepts as methods in educational and social science inquiry to account for an ontological arrangement in which humans are not seen as the only beginning of inquiry and in which transcendental and/or radical empiricism is in play. With the articles of this issue, we would like to offer a partly new or reconceptualized way of doing educational inquiry: a way where conceptsacts of thoughtare practices that reorient thinking, undo the theory/practice binary, and open inquiry to new possibilities.

    Uribe y Chacao: De la “Cultura Ciudadana” a la “Seguridad democrática” contra la Sala de Batalla Socialista Victoria Popular?2011Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [es]

    Hasta hace algunos meses la administración del municipio Chacao había venido trabajando por aproximarse a lo que muy vagamente ha enunciado como la “Cultura Ciudadana”, pero ahora ha cambiado al concepto de “seguridad democrática”. Para abordar este cambio ha requerido la asesoría del expresidente colombiano Alvaro Uribe y su cuerpo de seguidores. Debido al carácter político de este cambio es necesario precisar un poco en que consisten los conceptos a la luz de cómo estos han emergido de las particularidades  políticas en Colombia. Con una mejor comprensión de los conceptos es mas sencillo entender cuales pueden ser las posibles implicaciones de este cambio, tanto para la política local como para las relaciones diplomáticas entre las dos naciones.

    Schelling’s Reception in Nineteenth-Century British Literature2018Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This book examines the various ways in which the German philosopher Friedrich Schelling was read and responded to by British readers and writers during the nineteenth century. Challenging the idea that Schelling’s reception was limited to the Romantics, this book shows the ways in which his thought continued to be engaged with across the whole period. It follows Schelling’s reception both chronologically and conceptually as it developed in a number of different disciplines in British aesthetics, literature, philosophy, science and theology. What emerges is a vibrant new history of the period, showing the important role played by reading and responding to Schelling, either directly or more diffusely, and taking in a vast array of major thinkers during the period. This book, which will be of interest not only to historians of philosophy and the history of ideas, but to all those dealing with Anglo-German reception during the nineteenth century, reveals Schelling to be a kind of uncanny presence underwriting British thought.

    Abstract [en]

    The article initially points to some stereotypical narratives about 19th culture used during the 20th century that tend to obscure the understanding of critique of modernity and the diversity of directions of progress in the 19th century. Critique of modernity has to be analyzed in relation to some notion or narrative of modernity. Examples are given of different forms of critique of modernity and narratives of alternative directions of progress in 19th century Sweden. In order to bring some order to the diversity and to further reflection and discussion across different narratives of modernity, a meta-perspective is outlined in the form of a landscape of modernities with its different roads, directions and turning-points.

    "Rüsen’s response to the crisis of historicism"2017In: Intelligere, Revista de História Intelectual, ISSN 2447-9020, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 90-104Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although Rüsen only discusses the crisis of historicism explicitly in his work occasionally, his general perspective on historical knowledge can be interpreted as a response to the crisis. Different responses to the crisis of historicism correspond to different interpretations of its main problems. In order to specify Rüsen’s response, a number of aspects of his perspective are pointed out as solutions to such problems. Indirectly, the analysis discloses problems that any plausible attempt to come to terms with the crisis of historicism ought to handle. By identifying differences to other contemporary responses to the crisis of historicism, the continuing relevance of Rüsen’s approach is demonstrated.

    Allusions and Reflections: Greek and Roman Mythology in Renaissance Europe2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In June 2012, scholars from a number of disciplines and countries gathered in Stockholm to discuss the representation of ancient mythology in Renaissance Europe. This symposium was an opportunity for the participants to cross disciplinary borders and to problematize a well-researched field. The aim was to move beyond a view of mythology as mere propaganda in order to promote an understanding of ancient tales and fables as contemporary means to explain and comprehend the Early Modern world.With the Renaissance, pagan religion ceased to pose a threat to Christianity and its mythologies found a way to coexist with Christian doctrine. Old Greek and Roman tales came to play a crucial role in Renaissance culture, partly because the ancient sources, both literary and artistic, many of them recently uncovered, provided rich material for the writers and artists of the period. Mythology provided a network of allusions and references for contemporary poetry and art, reinforcing the possibilities of allegorical interpretation. Furthermore, it offered moral guidance since deities could easily be materialized into personifications of vices and virtues. All artistic expressions, visual and textual, whether they belonged to a secular or a religious tradition, made use of mythology. This volume exemplifies how Renaissance writers’ and artists’ acquaintance with mythological accounts from Homer to Apuleius was of utmost importance for their creative work, as it was for their readers and those contemporary patrons of art who saw themselves as the living embodiment of some remote ancient deity. By posing new questions and suggesting alternative answers to old ones, the contributors to this volume provide a better and more detailed understanding of the struggles and strategies of recycling, recuperating and transforming ancient mythology during the Renaissance. All chapters here have a common focus on the re-configuration of classical myths in Early Modern Europe, in political, erotic and ceremonial contexts. By returning to the classical world of cosmic strife and harmony, of gods and metamorphoses, Renaissance poets and artists were able to express their aesthetic ideals, personal preoccupations and moral attitudes. Ancient mythology offered them a full set of useful metaphors, which could take on new meanings in a new cultural context.

    Skenbar objektivitet: Om jämställdhetsidealens väg in i den medicinska diskursen2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to show how the ideas of gender equality in the late 1970 ́s and early 80 ́s were expressed in Swedish medical discourse. The questions asked are primarily how the ideas came to matter in medical discourse as well as the resistance against these ideas. The primary method used is a modified form of discourse analysis, to suit the aim of this study. The study draws upon three Official Reports of the Swedish Government. Prior research has found that ideas of female submission were a dominant part of the medical discourse, as well as the image of the caring mother. Research has also found that the traditional image of male and female as different species were in a profound reform process, due to, for example, the feminist revolutions, in which gender equality became a prioritized part of the international political agenda.

    This study shows that the resistance to the ideas of gender equality within the medical discourse was still hard to break trough in the early 1980 ́s. The women that were represented in medical studies, as scientists or as a target for research, were minimal or not represented at all – but they who did illustrates how the androcentric ideals of the medical discourse dominated the selection of objects to research, as well as the research itself. This study also shows that, even though the ideas of gender equality were politically accepted, and academic expressions of the opposite opinion were not, the expectations of men and women were still rooted in older ideas of the rational working man and the emotional house wife.

    Granice Europy.: O wadze lokalizacji i znaczeniu przestrzeni w emigracyjnych dyskusjach historycznych.2009In: Powrzesniowa emigracja niepodleglosciowa na mapie kultury nie tylko polskiej. / [ed] Violetta Wejs-Milewska, Ewa Rogalewska, Bialystok: Wydawnictwo Uniwersyteckie Trans Humana , 2009, p. 45-58Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [pl]

    1. Szczególną sytuację intelektualistów decydujących się na emigrację lub do niej zmu­szo­nych rozważać można z m.in. politycznego, socjalnego, egzystencjalnego punktu wi­dzenia (Tabori, Kołakowski, Said, Kirsch). W badaniu myśli emigracyjnej problem jej lokalizacji, t.j. specyficznych warunków powstawania, jest jednym z podstawo­wych kryteriów zrozumienia jej merytorycznych oraz retorycznych sensów. Jak sytu­acja fizycznego i mentalnego odcięcia od kraju oraz organizowanie optymalnych wa­run­ków działania w nowym otoczeniu oddziaływały na kształt profesjonalnego życia emi­grantów oraz na formowanie się konceptualnego i wyobrażeniowego uniwersum emi­gracyjnej myśli? W jaki sposób wiązała się ona z podstawową polityczną ideą sa­mej emigracji? Do jakiego stopnia ulegała ideologicznym i politycznym naciskom no­we­go otoczenia? Na ile była otwarta/ zamknięta wobec nowych idei/metodologii?

    2. Silna świadomość lokalizacji otwierać może nowe obszary myślenia przestrzennego. Sposób myślenia o przestrzeni, szczególnie w naukach historycznych, bywa wyrazem sposobu traktowania tego, co polityczne. Drugim zagadnieniem, któremu chcę po­świę­­cić uwagę, jest kilka koncepcji historii przestrzeni europejskiej dyskutowanej w pra­cach historyków/publicystów emigracyjnych, m.in. Oskara Haleckiego, Mariana Kukiela, Józefa Mackiewicza. Jaka mogła być geneza tych konceptów? Jaka była ich rola w “narracjach historycznych”, które tworzyli? Historia przestrzeni Europy akcen­tu­jąca dzieje formowania się i przekształcania jej granic staje się w tych ujęciach rów­nież przesłanką określania dynamiki politycznej Polski historycznej. Trzy różne kon­cepcje: konfesyjną wizję Haleckiego, racjonalno-prawną opcję Mackiewicza i na­ro­dową Kukiela można, jak się wydaje, traktować jako komplementarne.

    A knower and friend of human beings, not machines: The business career of the terminology of social engineering, 1894-19102007In: Ideas in History, ISSN 1890-1832, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 43-82Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The terminology of ‘social engineers’ and ‘social engineering’ has been used in divergent ways in different historical contexts. Against the backdrop of the predominantly negative usages of recent decades, not least in critical evaluations of the Swedish welfare state, this article brings out the application that originally turned the terms into common goods. The business career of the expressions started in 1894 with an essay by the relatively radical Dutch industrialist J. C. Van Marken, and received its last major impetus in a book by the moderate American social reformer W. H. Tolman in 1909 (in French 1910). The main idea was that there was a parallel function to fill, alongside that of technical expertise, within modern industry. Dealing with human beings, solving problems within (and perhaps around) the workplace, was just as important for private companies as handling materials and machinery, not least in terms of efficiency and profitability due to motivation and loyalty among the workers. Van Marken’s and Tolman’s approaches are compared, mirroring the encounter between social reform and business management within ‘the labour question’ of the era. The functional parallel introduced by them, stressing the non-technical nature of the social engineer’s professional qualifications, including the talents of the diplomat, is also contrasted with the original version of the usages revolving around the machine metaphor (still the conceptual core in latter-day pejorative applications of the terminology), which was popularized as a positively-charged rhetorical tool in a religious context in 1911.

    CSA – en överbryggningscentral och dess idéer2006In: Ligga till last: Fattigdom och utsatthet - socialpolitik och socialt arbete under 100 år, Gleerups, Malmö , 2006, p. 51-64Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln presenterar motiven bakom, förebilderna för, och karaktären av det arbete som bedrevs inom Centralförbundet för socialt arbete (grundat 1903) under de första åren. Den avvisar myten om CSA som en specifikt liberal åsiktssammanslutning för "socialpolitik" i trängre mening (dvs. med exklusiv inriktning på offentligt beslutsfattande). I stället presenteras CSA som en i politisk mening brokig sammanslutning, med vänsterliberaler i rollen som "värdar", med stark förankring i arbetarrörelsen (inom ramen för tidens vänstersamverkan för allmän rösträtt), samt med icke obetydlig förankring också till höger om det "tuschstreck" som präglade det politiska landskapet under decennierna före det demokratiska genombrottet. CSA:s arbete med att genom kunskapsinsamling och informationsspridning främja lösningar på "sociala frågor" var pluralistiskt till sin karaktär, vilket inte minst innebar att det lika ofta inriktades på privata aktörers möjligheter (t.ex. filantropiska inrättningars, folkrörelsers - inklusive konsumentkooperationen och fackföreningsrörelsen, eller industriföretags möjligheter) som på statens eller kommunernas. CSA var inte en liberal tankesmedja, inte heller Sveriges "Verein für Sozialpolitik", utan en överbryggningscentral efter modell från USA och Frankrike, som uppvisade en unik förmåga att skapa utbyte mellan krafter av olika karaktär och kulör i sin tids samhälle.

    Ett manifest för processtolkande idéhistoria: 100 teser om tänkandet och dess historieskrivning1998In: Lychnos: Årsbok för idé- och lärdomshistoria, ISSN 0076-1648, p. 9-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    The historiography of "ideas" and its basic conditions are treated under five headings: "Prepatory remarks"; "Cognitive work - its frames of interest and course through interrogative processes [spörsmålsprocesser]"; "The stylisation of thought by means of social interaction; "Thought as situated use of words"; "The responsibility of the thinker and the judicial interrogative process". Starting from a criticism against the blind use of everyday language in methodological self-reflection and historical analysis among intellectual historians - the habit of speech referring to "ideas" as ethereal things, not as human activities - the historical nature of the intellectual historians task is emphasised. A set of analytical tools and heuristic viewpoints are proposed, stressing the social nature of thinking: thought is nothing more or less than human acts and efforts which takes place in historical processes of interaction - processes to be reconstructed by the intellectual historian.

    ”Maskinmodernitet och dystopisk lycka: den sociala ingenjörskonstens Sverige, upplaga Huntford 1971”2009In: Polhem: Teknikhistorisk årsbok 2006-2007, ISSN 1653-4964Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The British Conservative Roland Huntford’s anathema in The New Totalitarians (1971) bids a link between the fight by means of images of Sweden in the surrounding world 1932-76, and the domestic creation of images of the nation’s recent past in the subsequent decades. The common element is the theme of social engineering, and this essay aims to raise the question how the link might be interpreted, given that Huntford’s analysis was well known in Sweden (probably more than any statement in the external debates), and given that his theme of social engineering was an essential part of a theoretical framework which claimed technological development to be heading towards control on the socio-cultural level – but also a piece of ammunition in contemporary struggles over the welfare state.
