våldsutövning och de psykologiska mekanismerna
2019 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis has its starting point in the theory that the healthy human has a built-in resistance to killing. To get around this resistance requires psychological mechanisms that activate something that can be likened to a moral decoupling and enable the practice of violence. This study aims to contribute with an understanding of the effect of these psychological mechanisms and its significance to the Swedish armed forces by examining whether these are applied in the education system. The examination intends to answer whether the psychological mechanisms deindividualization and dehumanization are applied in the regulations and manuals linked to basic soldier education. The study shows that deindividualization and dehumanization can be identified in analyzed empiricism. However, these mechanisms are nothing that is lifted in a direct way in the empiricism, but something that has been identified by text analysis as latent messages.
