2016 (English)In: Ethics, Democracy and Markets: Nordic Perspectives on World Problems / [ed] Giorgio Baruchella, Jacob Dahl Rendtorff & Asger Sørensen, Köpenhamn: NSU Press, 2016, p. 55-65Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this chapter is to investigate, out of three examples, the possible formation of a societal ethics upon the phenomenology of Merleau-Ponty and how these examples relate necessarily to the societal dimension. For an ethics to qualify as a societal ethics it has to be derived from a practice and be related to or address social problems in this practice (Cortese, 2004). The three examples are: Maurice Hamington’s (2004) attempt to form an ethics upon embodiment; Michael Yeo’s (1992) ethics beyond the philosophy of identity; and Simone de Beauvoir’s (1948) ethics of ambiguity. Out of the three, Hamington’s attempt is the most successful one, since it is based on the encounter with the Other and includes a consideration of the influence of social institutions on the encounter. Yeo’s and de Beauvoir’s attempts lack a genuine societal dimension.

Abstract [en]

In this paper I would like to challenge the dominating understanding of voluntary risk-taking as activities with a focus on risk (Lyng 2005). Instead I am arguing for a shift in focus from risk to control, which is the outcome of a successful interaction with risk. Based on a case study from scuba diving, I analyse the practice of control as what Foucault (1988) calls a “technology of the self”. With this shift in focus to control, participants in risk activities are understood as practicing a dominating ideal in the neo-liberal society, where the individual is increasingly supposed to be responsible and in control of his/her own life (Simon 2002).

Abstract [en]

The paper investigates creativity as an attitude on demand from the researcher in a special situation in the research process. The situation occurs when the collected data does not coinside with the antecipated result. Hans Joas understanding of creative action is abolished for the adaptation of the Aristotelian concept of practical wisdom (phronesis) as the foundation for the attitude. The data has to be analysed with the unique and particular in focus in order for new connections and relations to be revealed. An attitude concentrated on revealing the particular in the data is necessary. From there a new attitude takes over that focuses the general on behalf of the particular. The research process is exposed in a parallell text on Scuba diving.
