Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Södertörns högskola/Institutionen för genus, kultur och historia


This essay is a work on Mircea Eliades's interpretation of the religious human understood as "homo religiosus" and the role of the shaman from the Eliade perspective. In Eliade human existence consists of a dichotomy between the sacred and the profane. The question is whether one can understand the concept of Eliades “axis mundi”, center of the universe? Can we create an understanding of human existence with Eliade? Can one use  phenomenology of religion as perspective for the exploration of “reality”? Furthermore, this paper aims to understand the role of the shaman has religious worldviews. Shamaism  is through an ecstatic technique traveling to other cosmic plane, in order to gain knowledge that would otherwise not be reached. Two short chapters also show examples of Swedish religious phenomenological research by Ake Hultkrantz and Carl Johan Gurt.

The key issues are: What is Shamanism? How can we understand  Eliades philosophical exposition of man as homo religosus? Are Eliades theories (by Hultrantz and Gurt) represented in the Swedish scientific research? And, what is today's religion phenomenological research (by Gurt)?
