    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims at formulating a human rights justification based on the assumption that disbelief in human rights is found in communicative grounds, rather than some sort of unreasonable evil. I first identify what I believe to be a flaw in the communicative strength of existing human rights justifications in explaining why rights should be. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Ett hål i känseln : Om språkupplevelsens fenomenologi i Ann Jäderlunds författarskap

    Master-uppsats, Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för kultur och estetik

    Författare :Osvald Wiklander; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Ann Jäderlund; phenomenology; cognitive poetics; affect theory; George Lakoff Mark Johnson; Maurice Merleau-Ponty; Gilles Deleuze Felix Guattari; Vimpelstaden; Som en gång varit äng; Blomman och människobenet; I en cylinder i vattnet av vattengråt; Vad hjälper det en människa om hon häller rent vatten över sig i alla sina dagar;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims to analyze and interpret a number of central works – Vimpelstaden (1985), Som en gång varit äng (1988), Blomman och människobenet (2003), I en cylinder i vattnet av vattengråt (2005) and Vad hjälper det en människa om hon häller rent vatten över sig i alla sina dagar (2009) – by the Swedish poet Ann Jäderlund (1955-) in the context of phenomenology and affect theory. The analysis consists of three chapters and proceeds chronologically with technical scrutinies of separate phases of Jäderlund’s œuvre – from the aphasic-like treatment of established phraseologies in Vimpelstaden and frozen expressions of the botanical discourse in Som en gång varit äng, to the uncanny focus on perceptual patterns as such in her later works.
